About IDA

Mission Statement

The mission of the MTSU Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs is to promote cultural awareness, understanding and a sense of belonging for all students at MTSU. Additionally, the Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs helps the University in providing comfortable, supportive and relevant environments; while also serving as an information, referral and resource base for the provision of support services. Finally, the office creates opportunities in and out of the classroom that help students further their life goals and heighten and enhance their academic, social, psychological, cultural, moral, physical and personal growth and development. Together, the Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs and the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment and Academic Services and MTSU help produce citizen leaders who make substantive contributions to their communities.


The Intercultural and Diversity Affairs Center is located on the third floor of the Student Union Building (STU 320), immediately next door to the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) STU 330.

**All students are welcome and encouraged to use the IDA Center. **
