The Intercultural Center (formerly Center for Multicultural Affairs, CMA) plans and implements educational, cultural, social and recreational presentations on diversity to facilitate cross cultural dialogue for the entire campus at Fredonia. The center serves as the hub for the department of Intercultural Programs & Services.
Department of Intercultural Programs & Services (IPS) Mission
The Department of Intercultural Programs & Services seeks to enhance the student experience by cultivating an inclusive community, on and off campus, through support and collaboration with campus constituents, while providing students with the skill sets needed to excel and make a difference. The department is comprised of three offices:
Empower the campus community to take ownership of fostering an inclusive community.
- IPS seeks to establish an inclusive community of diverse students.
- IPS seeks to inspire students in leadership roles to make a difference in their community through collaboration and other means.
- Through programming, workshops, trainings and events, affiliated with IPS, students and faculty will be able to create a community that is supportive, inclusive, and a service to the campus.
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.
