The Center for Multicultural Affairs plans and implements educational, cultural, social and recreational presentations on diversity to facilitate cross cultural dialogue for the entire campus at Fredonia. Programs for faculty, staff and students are created in order to increase sensitivity to multicultural issues.
The office encourages the campus community to investigate and acknowledge dissimilar cultures, recognize and celebrate differences because the very things that separate can, with mutual respect, bring communities together.
