CICCE’s Mission

The Center for Inclusion & Cross Cultural Engagement works enthusiastically to develop programs and services that support the University of Mississippi’s core value of inclusiveness.

The center works to foster an environment that is characterized by open and ongoing communication that deepens students’ understanding of their own and others’ identity, culture and heritage. It is dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive campus environment that complements the academic experience, connects and engages students with the university community, and provides opportunities for success in a multicultural society.

Created to provide programs and services that encourage cross-cultural interactions and provide a physical space that is both nurturing and welcoming for students with diverse backgrounds, the center emphasizes inclusion and broad cultural educational opportunities for all students.
