Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs

Multicultural Student Organizations

Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs engages and supports over 40 Multicultural Student Organizations. These organizations represent our historically underrepresented domestic students. MSOs provide multiple opportunities for all students to gain leadership skills, learn about academic resources, and become culturally aware. 

The president and vice president of each MSO meets together once a month with the Office of Diversity and represents the Multicultural Student Organization Leadership Council. The mission of the MSOLC at Kansas State University is to collaborate among groups of multicultural students and promote their academic and intellectual growth, as well as foster positive relationships among all students.

ALL DMSA Spring 2020 Events & Programs Suspended

Due to recent safety precaution practices of social distancing to minimize the spread of COVID-19, all DMSA spring 2020 events and programs have been suspended indefinitely. These social distancing steps are admittedly inconvenient but have proven to be effective in other locations and will help safeguard the greater good for all.

If you have any questions regarding our efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, or any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a DMSA representative. Staff can be reached via phone at 785-532-6276 or email ksudiversity@k-state.edu.
