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.

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.
