Introduction

As the largest cultural organization at Pikes Peak Community College, the Multicultural Student Union (MSU) serves a large percentage of the multicultural student population on all four campuses.

Mission

The MSU's mission is threefold: to unify the diverse community, to educate PPCC's campus about the history of our diverse population and their culture, and to serve the community outside of PPCC's campuses. We accomplish these goals in many ways.

Initiatives

Here are some examples of the great initiatives and opportunities MSU provides to the community and to participants:

  • Volunteer experience with the Marion House Soup Kitchen, The Salvation Army, and other organizations offering service to our community.
  • Participation in many social events, such as annual trips to Aspen for leadership and exposure to etiquette training, not to mention some skiing as well!
  • Continuing participation in the annual Big XII Conferences for the past 5 years. This conference is a three-day leadership conference sponsored by the Black Student Government.
  • Student Ambassadors that have spoken at the Black Chamber of Commerce as well as multiple schools and community organizations.
  • Academic support and career preparation assistance provided to MSU participants to help them achieve their goals.

Through these initiatives, we aim to equip our members with the tools necessary for success in all facets of PPCC life and beyond.
