Multicultural, American Indian and Retention Services

As a unit under the Dean of Students in Student Affairs, the Multicultural, American Indian and Retention Services Department promotes the academic success of historically underrepresented incoming, current, and graduating students by providing retention programming and a wide range of services that include advocacy and educational planning.

Students are assisted and supported by the culturally-sensitive staff. The services are designed to enrich the academic and social experience of students while also connecting them to university and relevant community resources. If you are interested in our services, please call us to make an appointment.
