The Multicultural Leadership Team (MLT), established in 1991, is dedicated to cultivating a diverse and inclusive community of student leaders committed to effecting social change. Through our multifaceted approach of awareness, advocacy, and action, we strive to engage the campus community in dialogue and action around issues of social justice, equity, and diversity.

Members of the Multicultural Leadership Team participate in a comprehensive leadership development program designed to empower them as agents of change. This program includes opportunities for personal growth, skill development, and community engagement. To fulfill our commitment to service and leadership, members are required to complete 60 hours of community service annually and deliver three presentations (1 team presentation & 2 community presentations) on topics related to social justice and diversity.

At the heart of our mission is the belief in the power of dialogue and collaboration to foster understanding and promote positive change. Through our transformative program, we empower student voices and facilitate meaningful dialogue among individuals from diverse backgrounds and identities. Together, we strive to create a campus community where all voices are heard, valued, and respected.
