About Us

Mission and Philosophy

The Center for Multicultural Affairs & Services (CMAS) reflects Saint Michael’s commitment to a campus and a world that values every human being, and supports and celebrates their uniqueness, experiences and contributions.  The Center contributes to the personal and intellectual development of all students.  We realize that exploring diversity and multiculturalism cannot be devoid of a historical framework or the historicity of race, class and ethnicities in a country that is arguably the most socially, racially and ethnically diverse in the world.  We also recognize that achieving diversity on campus requires more than celebrating differences or similarities.  Thus, we seek to engage, support, mentor, guide, and accompany those who identify as BIPoC, first-generation, and international students.

About the Center

We are located in Alliot 223, on the second floor. 

Hours: 

  • Monday-Friday: 8:00am-10:00pm
