Office of Cultural Diversity

What can Cultural Diversity do for you?

The office of Cultural Diversity seeks to promote an all-inclusive environment where every individual feels equal and respected. It provides students, faculty and staff with the opportunity to better appreciate the uniqueness of each human being. It also seeks to expose the BSCTC community to different cultures, values and international perspectives. We have a Multicultural Student Organization and a Governor's Minority Student Preparation Program for middle school minority students in grade 6-8.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to join the Multicultural Organization, Please contact:
