Meet our Intercultural Specialist and liaison to American Indian and Indigenous students, Melissa Beard Jacob.
The Student Life Multicultural Center (MCC) raises awareness to the larger communities that Indigenous peoples are still here and making strides on all levels of American society. The MCC continues to partner and build relationships with the American Indian Studies program and the American Indian/Indigenous Student Initiatives (AISI), so that we may celebrate and educate students, staff, faculty and allies about the diversity of American Indian and Indigenous peoples before, during and after contact.

I would like to acknowledge that the land we are meeting on today has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, specifically the Shawnee, Miami, Wyandot and Delaware Nations. I honor and respect the diverse Indigenous peoples connected to this territory on which we gather.
