We promote positive student-to-student and group-to-group interaction to contribute to the multicultural education of all students and to the social/cultural development of leaders able to navigate a diverse and complex global society. Our programs focus on advocacy, education, identity and community-building. We strive to be an affirming and welcoming space on campus that works to incorporate principles of social justice into our programs and services. All are welcome and encouraged to attend our programs and get involved in our work.

We are located at 626 Thurston Avenue, the Office of the Dean of Students, Diversity & Inclusion. The A3C is staffed Monday through Friday.  Our lounge is open for you to enjoy during regular building hours of the Intercultural Center. Please stop by and say hello or send us an email at  We look forward to meeting you soon!
