Students often find that a supportive network of friends, colleagues, and peers helps facilitate their academic and social needs, which in turn helps them perform at their best. The Office of Multicultural Affairs, operating through the office of the Dean of Students, aims to provide programs and services that provide the most student support possible.
Students find support through a variety of organizations including the Black Law Students Association, the Latin American Law Student Association, the Women’s Law Caucus and Outlaw (the school’s LGBTQ organization.)
We celebrate Black History Month, hold a special event each year to celebrate Martin Luther King Day; host an annual Diversity Alumni Reception where students can build networking relationships and actively seek out diverse students through the admissions process. BLSA students have established a mentoring program with upper division students and diverse lawyers from the surrounding area. Finally, we host an annual Dean's Diversity Forum, which brings together some of the nation's most creative and innovative thinkers to discuss a new topic each year.
