Student Center for Inclusion & Culture
The Student Center for Inclusion & Culture (SCIC) coordinates comprehensive, student-focused, cultural month programming and develops and implements a wide range of multicultural and social justice education and training opportunities on topics including but not limited to: gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and socioeconomic class by means of in-class presentations, intergroup dialogue circles, student organization workshops, etc., to increase student engagement and promote an inclusive and interdependent, socially just community.
SCIC leads and inspires both students and professional staff to create and maintain an engaged and vibrant university environment that promotes intercultural understanding, interaction and dialogue. Further, the SCIC strives to provide a variety of intentional settings where students can learn from each other by examining their preconceptions and prejudices, challenging themselves and each other to reach new levels of understanding and insight in conjunction with partners across the University and in the greater Philadelphia community.
The programs and services provided by the SCIC are based on a philosophy of social justice, meaningful and equal participation of a group within a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs. The programs and services provided by the office are open to all members of the Drexel University community.
