Welcome to the Multicultural Centre, a vibrant hub dedicated to celebrating and promoting cultural diversity at Lakehead University. Our journey began over a decade ago, fueled by a commitment to create an inclusive environment where every student feels welcomed, valued, and connected.

Our History

The Multicultural Centre was established as part of LUSU’s strategic initiative to support its increasingly diverse student body. Recognizing the growing need for a dedicated space where students from all cultural backgrounds could come together, the student union launched the centre with the mission of fostering intercultural understanding and dialogue. Our history is marked by numerous milestones, including hosting many of the university’s first International events, launching cultural competency workshops, and establishing key partnerships with local community organizations.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a beacon of multiculturalism, where diversity is celebrated and inclusivity is the norm. We aim to:

  • Promote Cultural Awareness: Through events, workshops, and collaborations, we strive to enhance understanding and appreciation of different cultures within the university community.
  • Support International Students: We provide essential resources and support services to help international students adjust to life in Canada and succeed academically and socially.
  • Foster Community Engagement: By building strong connections between students and the broader community, we encourage civic engagement and social responsibility.

We invite you to join us in our mission to create a more inclusive and culturally rich campus. Whether you’re an international student looking for support, a local student interested in learning about different cultures, or someone passionate about diversity and inclusion, the Multicultural Centre is here for you.
