About Our Diverse Community
TU is home to a diverse population, with more than 1,100 international students representing 73 countries. Faculty, administrators, students and staff value our diverse campus population because it enriches the educational experience.
Through the university’s focus on internationalization, students are choosing to study abroad in record numbers and faculty are developing international research and teaching collaborations that advance their scholarship.
A variety of multicultural student organizations on campus provide cultural enrichment, information, assistance and support to international and minority students and provide forums for discussing relevant issues with other students and faculty.
There are 25 campus organizations representing African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, Latin American, Middle Eastern American, Native American and international students at TU.
The groups sponsor food bazaars, festivals, symposiums, lectures and guest speakers throughout the year.

- provides space for individuals and groups to study, relax and work on projects
- is a resource for current and prospective students
Multicultural Awareness Committee
The Multicultural Awareness Committee is comprised of student representatives from TU’s many multicultural organizations. The student-run committee provides programming, networking and support for these organizations as well as the community.
