Multicultural/Diversity

The Office of Student Activities is responsible for providing programs, activities, and general support that help to create and sustain a greater diversity among Reinhardt students, faculty, and staff. Students of different countries, cultures and ethnic origins enhance the Reinhardt community and the educational experience of all students. This experience in turn, leads us to an understanding and appreciation of diversity which fosters a richer learning environment.

Programs

Programs hosted by the Office of Student Activities promote several themed monthly events including programming for Hispanic Heritage Month, American Indian Heritage Month, Black History Month, and Women’s History Month. The purpose of recognizing these themes is to increase consciousness and knowledge of world history and to remember the contributions of notable and ordinary men and women. Special events are hosted by various student organizations throughout the year and include International Coffee Hour and International Culture Festival.
