The UNT Multicultural Center was established with the goal that it would be a place where students and community members could experience the cultural wealth of the University, with a central purpose to teach diversity through student engagement and promote student success. The Multicultural Center provides resources, information, educational opportunities, and events that build inclusion focusing on five areas of diversity: race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, interfaith, and disability.
The Multicultural Center celebrates diversity by planning, implementing and co-sponsoring programs that educate the center's five areas of diversity: race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, interfaith, and disability. Programs and activities sponsored by the center are developed with the intention of increasing the level of awareness, understanding, and consciousness regarding the diverse make up of our university, community, and global environment. Examples of these programs include Campus Safety Programs, Cafe Diversity discussion, Pride Initiatives, Dating and Domestic Violence Awareness, Disability Awareness, and celebrating Asian History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Black History Month, Women's History Month and Native American Indian Heritage Month.
The Multicultural Center has established several Special Interest Group Networks (SIGNs) and other community groups such as IDEA Team and Community Engagement Team to help members of the UNT community have a voice in diversity initiatives. These groups meet throughout the calendar year and work to partner with other campus and community groups to encourage diversity and inclusion at UNT and within the DFW metroplex. The Multicultural Center recently started a project called MLK Year of Service encouraging students to perform volunteer work to help the Denton community and abroad. Through partnership with the Center for Leadership and Service and the College of Public Affairs and Community Service, UNT students have heavily impacted the surrounding community through their hundreds of volunteer work.
The Multicultural Center hosts a number of conferences such as the Asian Pacific American Empowerment Conference (APAEC) and the Equity and Diversity Conference. Conferences are open to anyone and are free to UNT students. Both conferences feature dynamic nationally known speakers and workshops that encourage empowerment, civic engagement, and transformational leadership.
