Multicultural and International
Programs and Services
St. Catherine University is committed to addressing all forms of oppression. Through the Office of Multicultural and International Programs and Services (MIPS) we work to create a safe space where people of all races can learn about the impact of racism on our community and society.
MIPS inspires and stimulate students, community members, and local organizations to build relationships across differences. MIPS programming includes:
- Speakers, forums, trainings, and events throughout the year. Offerings such as the Minority Reporter and Llewellen Smith of Vital Pictures create spaces for dialogue and education on systemic oppression.
- Opening the door for women of color through programs like First Step Summer Institute and Step-by-Step Institute, which address the needs of women of color considering a university education.
- A wide array of programs and services for students of color and international students.
