Angelo State University has a diverse campus composed of students, faculty and staff from Texas, other states and various foreign countries. The Multicultural Center works to encourage an inclusive and supportive environment for all members of the ASU community by promoting awareness and understanding of different cultures, people, ideas and perspectives. Diversity education, leadership and quality programs are provided to encourage appreciation and celebration of differences. The center sponsors and provides support for several programs that focus on recruiting, retaining, and graduating first-generation and diverse students.
The Multicultural Center was created in the fall of 2008 and is overseen by the Office of the President. Located in the University Center, the Multicultural Center is a central site where students can receive information about available programs as well as enjoy the mix of cultures and people who pass through the door.
