The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Student Services (DMSS) and Student Access and Success (SAS) provide an accessible, inclusive environment that enriches the university experience and engages students, their families and the community. We serve and empower student populations whose access, retention, academic success and graduation are most challenged by socio-historical factors and contemporary inequities.

This office provides general advising, programs, services, advocacy, and counseling. Programs include the following TRiO programs: Student Support Services, Upward Bound, and Educational Talent Search.

Students are also served through the Diversity Scholarship Program, African American/African/Black Student Services, Students with Disabilities Resource Center, Latino Student Services, Asian American/Asian/Pacific Islander Student Services, and Native American/Alaskan Native Student Services.

Five student cultural centers - the Native American Student and Community Center, La Casa Latina Student Center, African American/African/Black Student Center, the Asian American/Asian/Pacific Islander Student Center and the Multicultural Center – provide welcoming gathering space for co-curricular programs and community-building.
