The Multicultural Student Advisory Board is a diverse group of students committed to campus-wide anti-racism education, cultural competency and racial reconciliation, with the goal of creating a safe, welcoming and diverse campus community. Students promote intentional and thought-provoking discussions, cultural sensitivity and multicultural awareness, and serve as a Peer Review Board to monitor the campus climate for students. MSAB seeks to nurture an environment in which an appreciation for diversity can thrive to model the kingdom of Jesus Christ, composed of people from every nation, language and tribe.
This mission will be accomplised by:
Members of the Multicultural Student Advisory Board vary in racial/ethnic background, socio-economic background, major and experience. Members must be juniors and seniors, be willing to share their life experiences, open to learning from others, and be committed to racial reconciliation in honor of the Biblical command to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” Studying abroad or taking an off-campus interim does not automatically disqualify a candidate from being selected.
MSAB holds one regular weekly meeting for an hour and a half, convenes as a Campus Climate Peer Review Board as needed, and is responsible for sponsoring one bimonthly campus event. One-on-one meetings are also held occasionally with the staff advisor.
