The Multicultural Office values the pursuit of truth and finds great understanding in the convergence of viewpoints, backgrounds and ideas. Therefore, we provide a safe environment where learners can openly discuss and debate to gain understanding.
We are here to promote the importance of positive community impact and encourage others to get involved through education, collaboration, advocacy and competency.
To love and serve the Grand Canyon University (GCU) community by upholding our Christian perspective to treat every individual with respect and compassion, and to provide a means of connection and communication for all. We carry out this mission through events and programming dedicated to multiculturalism, equity and inclusion.
We will create a safe and vibrant campus community that feels engaged, heard, welcomed and wanted.
"It is so important for all students to feel like they matter and are represented on campus. Our department provides that representation as well as helps to build communities and connect students of different backgrounds, races and ethnicities."
Ways To Get Involved
GCU offers regular events, programs and initiatives to help advance diversity and inclusion across campus. Below are a few ways you can get involved as a GCU student.
GCU Student Infinity Groups
GCU calls these “infinity” groups instead of "affinity" groups because we want to create life-long lasting relationships amongst the students while also creating a deep connection with the university.
The Multicultural Office student teams have created these ‘infinity’ groups as a show of lifelong support and efforts toward a better, more inclusive world. We invite you to get involved and stay active in the campus community by joining any of the below student groups that best fit your interests. We have something for every student. To sign up for a group or get more information, search them in the GCU Engage app.
Interested in starting your own infinity group? Complete this form and someone from the Multicultural Office will reach out to you.
