Diversity Education

Opportunities for multicultural education can be found through the following avenues. 

Multicultural Peer Educators (MPEs) serve as a collaborative and diverse group of students who aim to educate their peers on culture and issues of social justice. The MPE program exists to meet the growing needs of multicultural awareness across the University of Virginia. While many organizations, offices, and individuals seek to engage, support, and guide our academic community around topics of diversity and inclusion, this program aims to provide a peer-educational atmosphere for University members to participate in honest, insightful activities and discussions. MPEs receive ongoing trainings by professional staff and have the opportunity to facilitate impactful conversations highlighting social justice issues, promoting an inclusive community, and expanding cultural competency.  Additional information for requesting a presentation can be found under the "Multicultural Peer Educator" tab on the left side of this page.
