Social Justice and Advocacy

On January 8, 2002 the Multicultural Student Center (MSC) was established on the campus of the University of Central Florida. The MSC is an office dedicated to all students from all backgrounds. Come create cultural awareness through new and exciting events and meet new people and learn about new cultures.

The MSC's mission is to create a more inclusive and equitable campus environment that enriches the university experience through actively supporting diverse and intentional programming. The MSC will strive to promote awareness, strengthen cultural competency and social responsibility by encouraging the educational exploration and challenge of societal norms that enables students to explore the varied concepts of multiculturalism. For the MSC, multiculturalism extends beyond areas of race, ethnicity, and culture and includes sexuality, gender identity, ability, spirituality, and social advocacy to support a more culturally competent UCF student body.
