With over half of our students identifying as a student of color, LGBTQIA, international and/or as a religious minority, The University of Tulsa provides a unique opportunity to get to know people from a wide variety of identities and cultural backgrounds. Our diversity is a part of what enriches your educational experience at TU.
We encourage you to get to know students outside of your own cultural, religious or ethnic group and take this amazing opportunity to learn about yourself and others. It is our hope that your diverse experiences here will translate into a life of exploration with intercultural respect and appreciation at its core.
The Office of Multicultural Student Programs’ mission is to provide cultural and educational programming for the TU community. Through mentoring, advising and programming, we seek to create an environment that celebrates our culturally diverse community, promotes the personal and academic success of minority students and engenders the formation of individuals who lead culturally rich lives.
Leading a culturally rich life means becoming aware of the molding force of their own cultural background and seeking integrative experiences and relationships with people whose cultural backgrounds and traditions differ from their own.
