Center for Intercultural Engagement and Support


The Center for Intercultural Engagement and Support is a student-centered office that focuses on student engagement and success, building intercultural relationships and guiding students towards self-agency for their futures.

Through intentional, intercultural and intersectional expertise, the Center helps to inform the campus about pertinent issues and promotes skill acquisition around constructive dialogue and conflict resolution.


Through CIES, we help connect international students with local families through a friendship program. We provide assistance to students wishing to attend conferences relating to diversity and inclusion, identity, and other related topics. CIES sponsors two funding opportunities to assist students.
