IUP students welcoming you to the Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement is in “Remote Work Status.” The Center is open, but our employees are partially remote throughout the week. We are maintaining normal business hours. If you need assistance, staff can be reached via their IUP email or 724-357-2598. We are doing our best to respond to all phone calls and emails as quickly as possible; however, there may be a delay in our response to your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.

The Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement is a campus gathering space and resource/programming center, providing students from a diverse set of backgrounds a place to meet and socialize. Our dedicated space for student organizations and up-to-date collaboration areas provide a great place to meet and study.

The Center provides a variety of multicultural programs and student events, from leadership opportunities to fraternity and sorority life, including ways for all students to get involved on campus.
