Trotter Multicultural Center

Inclusive Student Leadership Program

Inclusive Student Leadership is a partnership with the School of Social Work that focuses on developing student leaders who understand multiculturalism, social justice, and recognize and address the nuances of individual identities through leadership. Through a course and retreat in Fall and Spring semesters this program seeks to enhance students' capacity for empathy, critical consciousness, commitment to justice, equity in purpose, the value of collective action, controversy with courage, and coalescence, to promote leadership skills and knowledge.

Intercultural Learning Program

Offering intercultural learning experiences and workshops for students, student staff teams and classes.  Often utilizing tools including the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), Intercultural Conflict Styles Inventory (ICS), etc., these offerings encourage global and inclusive mindsets as a strategy to effectively engage across differences.

Interfaith Program

The Interfaith Program at the Trotter Multicultural Center recognizes the critical role religious, spiritual and secular (RSS) worldview has in identity exploration, self-expression and in the practice of scholarship. Through intentional programming, this campus-wide initiative seeks to create and support efforts where students can explore their own RSS identity and make transformative connections with their peers across worldviews. Interfaith efforts are available through a collaborative partnership between the Center for Campus Involvement and the Trotter Multicultural Center.


Trotter Distinguished Leadership Series

Trotter Distinguished Leadership Series (TDLS) is designed to increase healthy discourse and learning throughout U-M by inviting speakers from the political and public service sectors of national and international note. Our goal is to bring together bright minds with talks that are idea-focused on a wide range of subjects to foster wonder and provoke conversations that matter to students.

Collaborative Programming

Collaborative Programming at the Trotter Multicultural Center offers a variety of programs in partnership with Schools, Colleges, and Units across campus to advance key DEI initiatives through the lens of Multiculturalism and Intercultural Development and to better serve students and the campus community.
