Winter 2022 Flourish Series

Join Trotter Multicultural Center, Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, and the LEAD Scholars Program to explore the many dimensions of wellness through the lens of personal and social identities.

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.
