The mission of the Multicultural Affairs Center (MAC) at Truman State University is to provide a support system for underrepresented students by creating a campus environment that nurtures Latino, African American, Native American and Asian American students academically, socially, culturally, and personally.
The MAC provides comprehensive academic and cultural programming to help foster an inclusive environment committed to diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. Our goal is to empower global leaders through education, leadership, and service.
Our vision to help students:
The events at the University of Missouri these past several weeks have caused me to reflect on our own campus and whether we are doing enough to address issues of discrimination. It is critically important that Truman promotes excellence that is inclusive, and in order to do so we must ensure a safe environment for all regardless of our differences. To learn more about the experiences of students on campus, I am reaching out to several groups to schedule meetings and listen. If I do not reach out to some group of which you are a part and you would like to talk with me about this issue, please contact my office so we can schedule a time to meet.
I am committed to making Truman a safe and supportive environment for all. This commitment stems from my belief that everyone is equal despite our differences and that our diversity is our strength. It also comes from my belief that the future of our democracy demands nothing less.
