During the 2011-2012 academic year, the Center for Multicultural Education and Diversity will provide awards of up to $250 for projects, workshops and activities that infuse diversity, global issues and different perspectives in curriculum and extra-curricular activities.

  2. Projects expand international and multicultural awareness and/or issues.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
