About the Office

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is committed to shaping a strong community among students of color while promoting an understanding of cultural diversity for the Smith community as a whole. The director coordinates activities that encourage exploration of one's identity, culture and heritage and an understanding of those of others. The office emphasizes the interests and needs of those who identify as students of color, beginning with the first-year preorientation program. The multicultural affairs office serves as a source of guidance and advocacy for students of color as they navigate their Smith experience.
