Multicultural Affairs: Student Advocacy
Multicultural Affairs serves as a resource for SAIC students, with specific emphasis on the needs of students from underrepresented communities. Please contact our Assistant Director regarding a variety of issues, ranging from adjusting to college to establishing connections within the SAIC community.
The Assistant Director also:
- Creates programming for the SAIC community addressing inclusivity and community-building, collaborating with different constituents within SAIC and throughout the Chicago area
- Advises and mentors affinity- and identity-based student organizations, helping them with programmatic efforts and navigating SAIC resources
- Develops diversity training for student leaders and resident advisors
Our Title IX Coordinator is the designated intake person for discrimination, harassment, and retaliation cases for students. If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, review SAIC’s policy in the Student Handbook and make an appointment to speak with Academic Advising. The institution’s goal in these matters is to create constructive solutions in assisting you with personal challenges, while providing support and guidance.
