Multicultural Programs and Services

The mission of Multicultural Programs and Services (MPAS) is to promote the academic and personal growth of FIU’s diverse and traditionally underserved student populations by embracing diversity, promoting social justice, and academic excellence. Through intentional programs and services, we strive to engage, retain, and graduate our students to become civically responsible members in our global society.

MPAS is consistently embracing diversity, cultural awareness and academic excellence.  Other areas that are under the MPAS umbrella include: LGBTQA, MLK Commemorative Celebration, Student Support Services Program (TRIO), Male Mentoring Initiative and Tutoring.
