Students in Talley Student Union


Welcome to Multicultural Student Affairs

Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) researches, designs and implements unique programs that promote the pursuit of academic success, retention and graduation of students, with an emphasis on African American, Native American, Hispanic/Latinx, and Asian Pacific Islander South Asian American students. Our programs and services expand students’ cultural horizons while honoring their respective cultural experiences. Multicultural Student Affairs works to bring academic enhancement opportunities, cultural awareness activities and student leadership development to all students on campus.

MSA is located on the 4th floor of Talley Student Union in suite 4261. We are open Monday thru Friday 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.

Multicultural Graduation

Multicultural Graduation is an annual student-centered ceremony that celebrates the diversity in the graduating class. As we have supported our students during their time at NC State, we also want them to feel supported and uplifted as they go out into the world with their degrees. At NC State, this tradition allows community members to pause, reflect and be inspired. While we aim to make this an inclusive space, this event centers the journey of graduating undergraduates, master’s and doctoral students from diverse backgrounds.
