Embracing Diversity

Advocate. Empower. Affirm.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs serves as a cultural resource for students, faculty, and staff. We provide direction and services for current and prospective students from underrepresented populations. Through creative and innovative programs, the office enhances cultural knowledge and produces a deeper appreciation for diversity and inclusion throughout the campus community. In addition, we offer diversity education programs that foster inclusive learning environments for all students. Students are encouraged to discover their unique identities as they develop their own mechanisms of support and endeavor to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of themselves and others. 

The Office of Multicultural Affairs sponsors student and faculty organizations including: 

ALANA Leaders 

ALANA (African American - Latina - Asian - Native American - Allies) Leaders is a welcoming community for all Bay Path University women. We celebrate every race, ethnicity, nationality and spiritual background. We promote diversity, individual development, respect, and awareness in a safe environment for all students. As diverse as an individual's thumbprint, we embrace diversity's unique mark, and unite as women to honor our heritage. We take pride in celebrating our individuality, as we work to build a more compassionate and aware campus community. 

ALANA is a safe space that I need in order to thrive in all levels as a student of color on campus. It has led to amazing opportunities as well as creating long lasting friendships. Without ALANA, I would not have been able to comfortably adapt to being a student here on campus." - Jacqueline, Legal Studies Major '17

Women of Culture 

The mission of Women of Culture is to promote education for all, to strive for global understanding, and cultivate an appreciation and respect for differences among the world's citizens. Women of Culture holds an annual event that offers students, faculty, staff, and community members an activity to celebrate diversity with music, dance, and ethnic foods.
