Student Resources

Diversity and Inclusion at SAIC

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is committed to an equitable, just environment, where the voices of all students, faculty, and staff, are heard, valued, and respected.

Multicultural Affairs as a Student Resource

Multicultural Affairs encourages the exploration of diverse narratives, perspectives, and ideas through programs, and initiatives in the student community. Multicultural Affairs is committed to cultivating inclusivity in the student community, which includes interdepartmental programmatic collaboration, student affinity group advisory support, and facilitation of community education. 

In the Office of Student Affairs, Multicultural Affairs serves as a resource for students looking for engagement, inclusion, and belonging. In addition to the resources listed on this webpage, Multicultural Affairs values the cultural richness in Chicago and encourages exploration. An interactive map of the city is available on the Chicago Tourism Board’s site for all exploring the city, it’s history, and it’s many neighborhoods and people. Any community member is invited to reach out for specific questions or concerns at maffai@saic.edu.
