The Student Center for Inclusion and Culture takes part in Drexel’s UNIV 101 course by sharing resources on diversity and multiculturalism to assist in the First Year Experience and promote student engagement in culturally- based activities on and off campus.
Members of The Student Center for Inclusion and Culture offer various multicultural and social justice workshops in partnership with other Student Affairs departments. All workshops have the goal of teaching from different branches of multicultural education in order to increase overall multicultural competency on campus. Recent workshops have included “The New Era of Diversity in Higher Education,” a lesson on new trends in multicultural affairs and defining diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism. Our social justice vision has created a week- long events, workshops and presentations for all of Drexel campus. This will include topics related to opreession, injustice, call to action, forms of actions, how to act up and be an advocate, and reflect on the week. We are excited to present Social Justice Week, January 16th- 21st!

How to get involved in Advocacy
The Student Center for Inclusion and Culture promotes that there are many different ways we can be an advocate for underrepresented groups. In a society that continuously grows more diverse, yet still faces challenges to support those changes, consequently, it is more important than ever for the Drexel University community to take part and become advocates for a more inclusive environment.
