Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence

The Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE) is a campus-wide resource that promotes an inclusive atmosphere to foster and enrich multicultural understanding among all members of the University of Minnesota community. MCAE's commitment to creating such a climate is driven by a student-first culture in which students are the highest priority.

MCAE seeks to provide services and programs that create powerful, caring human connections. The MCAE staff provides culturally-sensitive advice, and coordinates programs for individuals and groups on academic, financial, personal, and career concerns.

Success for MCAE is defined by the ongoing development of a culture of achievement that values equity, excellence, and human diversity while promoting social justice.
