Multicultural Development

Wheaton is committed to promoting the full flourishing of students of diverse backgrounds and provides opportunities for majority students to engage with issues of diversity. With resources such as the Office of Multicultural Development and the leadership of our Chief Intercultural Engagement Officer, our goal is to make Wheaton feel like home to students of every ethnicity.

We are committed to providing opportunities to address these issues first from the perspective of our unity in Christ. OMD works with the student organizations to provide multiple venues for fellowship, reflection, friendship, cultural celebration and addressing contemporary issues of diversity. Each of the organizations offer these venues out of gratitude for the gifts the Lord has given us in each of our distinct cultural backgrounds.

Culture-based Organizations

Unidad Cristiana, which means Christian Unity, strives to live out the full meaning of that name. We desire to come together through the unity that we have in Christ and out of that unity to celebrate and explore Latino cultures.
