Intercultural Affairs Mission

The mission of Intercultural Affairs is to provide an inclusive environment that examines, recognizes, accepts, and affirms human differences and similarities related to national origin, religion, gender, disability, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and socioeconomic status.

Welcome to Intercultural Affairs

Western Carolina’s Department of Intercultural Affairs is located on the second floor of the A.K. Hinds University Center.
The Department of Intercultural Affairs contributes to a culturally rich campus through advocacy, diversity and social justice education, leadership and the development of global citizens. Intercultural Affairs provides lectures, cultural awareness programs, films, and workshops to promote social justice and cultural competency as well as to respond to acts of discrimination and bias.  
The Department of Intercultural Affairs is home to:

  • A spacious lounge for small meetings and events
  • Resources including books, activities, periodicals, and artifacts representing various cultures
  • Media and computers for student use
  • Experienced staff who are available to provide academic, social, and personal support to students

We invite you to become an active member of Western’s intercultural family. Together, we will open doors and open minds.
