The Center for Race, Ethnicity & Diversity Education

Welcome!!! 

Thanks for visiting the homepage for the Center for Race, Ethnicity, & Diversity Education (CREDE), which was formerly the Multicultural Center.  Here, you will see that the CREDE is not only a physical space located on the second floor of Moseley, but is also the center of support for our ALANAM (African/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, Alaskan Native and Multiracial) communities and the convener of student diversity education campus-wide.  As you explore our website, I invite you to consider how the CREDE’s mission intersects with your interests.  With various skills and expertise, the entire staff shares an authentic desire to assist students in their identity development and intercultural competence.  We are constantly seeking opportunities to partner with students, faculty, staff, and others excited about “creating a campus where all members exercise inclusion and individuals flourish.”

Enjoy your stay on our website, visit often, and connect with us through social media to learn about the ever-growing programs, trainings, workshops, and services that we offer in the development of students.  Colleagues, too, will find value!

Regards,

Randy Williams, Ph.D.
