Multicultural Programming

Mission Statement

Augustana College's overall mission is to improve human relations by creating and supporting a community of learners that value and support diversity, cultural competency, and multicultural education.

Augustana welcomes and embraces people from all walks of life to our campus community.  We provide various services and programs specifically designed to support students from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds, who may at times experience a sense of isolation and fear. One of our primary goals is to provide academic, cultural and personal support to students of under-represented minorities on campus, while helping them to develop intellectual, social and leadership skills.

Whether you are a student, faculty, employee, alumnus or visitor from the community, we want you to feel like Augustana College is a place where you can just be who you are.
