About CIES

The Center for Intercultural Engagement & Student Success (CIES) 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.  

The Center supports the in-classroom experience by creating intentional opportunities for applied learning and activities that enrich campus climate and learning environment.

It works with student identity and interest groups to promote inter and intra-group collaboration and understanding and strengthen leadership opportunities and intercultural competence skills.
