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.

Multicultural Student Organization (MSO)

The Multicultural Student Organization (MSO) is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of culture and diversity within a world of disappearing borders by engaging students in activities which embrace various cultural aspects of the student population, the community, and the world. The MSO encourages educational awareness among all people, not only by encouraging students to learn about cultural aspects of other people they may encounter, but also by encouraging students to embrace and share their own cultures.

For More Information about the MSO, including how to become a part of it, visit their web page.
