Diversity and Multicultural Programming

Diversity and Multicultural Programming at Madison College is coordinated within the Intercultural Exchange. We are centrally located in C1430 on the Truax Campus. 

The Intercultural Exchange (IE) welcomes and validates the diverse cultures of our student body. It serves as a focal point that engages all students in the greater understanding of cultural diversity. We facilitate cross-college collaboration to support diverse students, and we strive to connect students to available resources and opportunities for personal and academic success. The IE strives to promote access, equity, and academic success in higher education; create campus-wide climate of justice; and offers programs and services that enhance personal growth and educate the campus about diversity in all its forms. 

Some past events and programs coordinated by Intercultural Exchange: Changing the Narrative Leadership Conference, Intercultural Fall Social, Back 2 Basics, and Dia de Los Muertos at Madison College. We support our identity-based clubs and United Common Ground. Find out what's happening in the IE and get involved!

Madison College’s response to the changing nature of diversity, which includes, but is not limited to, gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity and disability, requires a commitment by each member of the Madison College community to create and sustain a learning environment built on respect for the unique experiences and potential of all.
