The College of Idaho community reflects the diversity of our nation and the world. Nearly 100 international students from 46 different countries comprise approximately 8 percent of our student body. Our U.S. students come from across the country and include more than 21 percent who are Hispanic, African-American, Asian-American, American Indian or multiethnic.
The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs is to work to promote respect for multiculturalism in all its forms, to create an inclusive campus environment, and to provide programming opportunities which will better prepare students to thrive in a diverse society when they graduate from The College of Idaho.
Our office supports the C of I’s international and minority students in reaching their academic goals. We also oversee several student organizations including:
- AFRO Club
- The Association of Latino Americano Students (ALAS)
- The International Student Organization (ISO)
- College of Idaho Food Bank Organization
Our office is located on the 2nd floor of the McCain Student Center. It consists of a study room with computer access, student organization offices, and many comfortable couches and chairs. Students find our office environment inviting and welcoming and we encourage you to come by anytime you have concerns or if you simply want to say "hello" and hang out.
