We seek to create a safe space for the diverse student population at USF Sarasota-Manatee while we cultivate inclusiveness by affirming and celebrating the culture and heritage of our diverse campus community.  We encourage the USF Sarasota-Manatee community to engage in open-minded and meaningful dialogue preparing our students to become effective leaders and global citizens.

The Multicultural Affairs Committee (MAC) is composed of staff and students who work together to create positive change and raise awareness about the diversity USF Sarasota-Manatee has to offer.  We strive to enhance appreciation of all people through exposure of differences and similarities of culture, ideas and backgrounds, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or ability. Diversity is vital to an individual’s holistic development and the social fabric of the University.
