The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs is three-fold:
The Office of Multicultural Affairs exists to provide support to the underrepresented students at the University of Tennessee at Martin. The office seeks to identify the academic, cultural, economic, and social needs of underrepresented students. It also works to centralize and coordinate a holistic program for the University's efforts to cultivate the cultural diversity of the campus by communicating these needs, along with recommendations for meeting them, to other units on campus. The Office of Multicultural Affairs then provides programs and services that enhance the personal, social, educational, and cultural development of all students here at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs is committed to serving the UTM community as a resource. The office seeks to provide educational opportunities that assist all students in identifying commonalities while recognizing, understanding, accepting, respecting, and valuing their differences.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs supports student philanthropy, community service, and outreach programs both on campus and within the global community.
