The Multicultural Parents Alliance (MPA) operates under the umbrella of the general Parents’ Association and is a subgroup of ethnic minority parents and white parents who are parenting ethnic minority children or children of color. We work with the faculty and the administration on multicultural initiatives such as faculty diversity training, organizing social activities for parents of color, and acting as advocates for parents on student diversity issues. We promote dialogue on diversity topics for the larger parent community. For more information, please contact the parent co-chairs or the Director of Multicultural Affairs (contact information listed to the right).
