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!

Gender & Expression

Madison College is planning activities to address the campus climate and culture through an awareness of topics and issues affecting our community. Working together we hope to be able to increase visibility of important topics through a thematic approach each semester.

"Gender & Expression" is the theme for Spring 2019. This theme encompasses how you choose to express your gender and how society expects you to express your gender.

What is Protégé Peer Coaching Program (PPC)?
Protégé Peer Coaching (PPC) is a peer mentoring program that serves incoming students and help them get adjusted to life at Madison College. Our Protégé peer coaches meet with their protégés weekly to provide academic and social support. PPC also provides monthly student success sessions to equip our students with the necessary skills, knowledge and talents to be successful at Madison College.

How does the selection process work?
Students are selected into Protégé Peer Coaching (PPC) by attending any WolfPack Welcome and signing up to take the ACT- Engage Survey. The students that score in the academic middle range on the ACT- Engage are selected to be in PPC.

What is the ACT-Engage Survey?
The ACT- Engage Survey is a 25 minute online assessment that evaluates a student’s probability of returning to college after their first year based on the non- academic factors the student have (i.e. childcare, transportation, work, etc.). Students that score in the academic middle of the ACT- Engage survey are given admission into PPC
