The mission of the MLKCDE is to support the university diversity goals by developing and offering programs and experiences designed to prepare all students for the social, cultural and political challenges of an increasingly complex, multicultural, global community. Our guiding philosophy is grounded in the conviction that the development of self-knowledge and cultural competence based on an enlightened worldview is a vital dimension to becoming a genuinely educated person. Likewise, educated people should be knowledgeable and sensitive to the cultural essence of other peoples.
