We promote and celebrate a multicultural environment.

The Office of Multicultural and International Student Programs supports the identity of every student. We offer educational and social programs that highlight the value every student brings to campus regardless of race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic level, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We believe the strength of a multicultural atmosphere is in the understanding of what makes every student unique.

GSA _Gay-Straight Alliance

Student Allies For Equality (SAFE) is the Ally organization of King’s College. SAFE consists of a group of dedicated individuals who seek to foster awareness, understanding, and acceptance of the many issues facing the LGBTQ community. While this is our primary goal, we also maintain other important objectives such as the continuation of a ‘safe’ environment free of bias through educating the campus community in understanding the complexities of sexual orientation-identification. In addition, we aim to unite the campus community by various means of proactive events such as open discussions of LGBTQ issues within the campus and surrounding community.
