The George Washington University's (GW) Multicultural Student Services Center (MSSC) is an integral part of the Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) in the Office of the Provost. The MSSC reports directly to the Vice Provost, ODECE, Caroline Laguere-Brown. Our vision and mission reflect our dedication to building a welcoming, enriching, and inclusive environment at GW. Our rich history demonstrates our role and impact across campus as educators, trainers, advocates, mentors, and community builders.


The MSSC enhances the GW experience by preparing students for success in an increasingly diverse and global society. In support of the university value of diversity, the MSSC leads university student diversity initiatives to ensure the same high quality university experience for all students, while contributing to an environment that promotes cultural competency, inclusion, and social justice.


Through the development of strategic partnerships and innovative programs, the MSSC facilitates student leadership development and provides academic support, diversity training, and cultural programming.  By creating a safe space, we welcome students to explore, embrace and share their diverse identities and experiences.
