Mission and goals
The Office of Intercultural Initiatives (OII) creates a respectful and
engaging learning community that promotes multicultural understanding
and social justice awareness for Saint Martin's University.
To achieve our mission, OII sponsors a variety of
initiatives that focus on three areas:
Services that support underrepresented and underserved students
Programs that foster critical multicultural awareness
Opportunities that engage participants in
social justice education and action.
Emphasizing these areas helps
Saint Martin's work towards a more engaging campus community that
transforms systems of exclusion and oppression and prepares students to
become fully engaged participants within the broader society.
In so doing, OII seeks to meet the following goals:
Support the academic success of underserved and underrepresented
students that fosters holistic development.
Develop multicultural programs, services, and events that engage
participants in critical learning opportunities.
Promote social justice awareness and education for the campus
community that encourages participants to become effective agents
