Diversity and Multicultural Programming
Diversity and Multicultural Programming at Madison College is coordinated by the Student Support Advisors within the Intercultural Exchange. We are centrally located in C1430 on the Truax Campus. This space on campus strives to promote access, equity, and academic success in higher education; create a Madison College campus-wide climate of justice; and offers programs and services that enhance personal growth and educate the campus about diversity in all its forms.
The Intercultural Exchange 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.
Some past events and programs coordinated by Diversity and Multicultural Programming include: the Monday Exchange and Engage Series (M.E.E.), the Changing the Narrative Leadership Conference, Multicultural Fall Social, Scholarship Writing Workshops, Ethnic Youth Career & College Fairs, and the Pow Wow at Madison College. We support our identity-based clubs and United Common Ground. Find out what's happening at the Exchange and get involved!
Commitment to Diversity
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. This ensures that Madison College is preparing students personally and professionally to become active and successful participants in a complex, diverse world.
