Director's Welcome

Explore. Honor. Be.

These three words are central to who we are and what we do in The Cultural Centers at USF. The Intercultural Center began as Multicultural and International Student Services and over the years, has become a space for all to explore the complexities of our multiple identities. By beginning with oneself, we are taking responsibility for understanding who we are and the impact we have in the world to be agents of change for social good. While each of us are working on better understanding our own identities, we must honor that others may or may not be deeply reflecting on their own identities as well. Finally, as you continue in your college career to strive towards magis (to be more, greater), you can fully strive to, in the words of Ghandi, “be the change you wish to see in the world.”

The Intercultural Center and The Gender & Sexuality Center and our programs are open to who wish to strive towards magis. The staff is committed to providing space for all to explore issues regarding identity, social justice, and equality. We are also committed to the development, success, and achievement of historically underserved and underrepresented students, LGBTQ individuals and their allies. The staff and I look forward to seeing you at our programs at events and in the Centers, located in the University Center, on the 4th floor, in rooms 411 and 412. For more information on our events, please visit our Events Calendar.
