MESA Mission

The Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) office provides advising, services, and activities that promote the academic success, personal growth, and development of multiethnic students. MESA also conducts educational programs that enhance learning through the promotion of respect and appreciation of racial and ethnic diversity. MESA supports the academic mission of UW-Green Bay and contributes to the development of a campus community dedicated to diversity of thought and experience.

Through its programs, services, resources, activities, and collaborative efforts, the MESA seeks to:

  • Provide academic, social, and cultural support to help multi-ethnic students achieve their educational goals.
  • Orient new multi-ethnic students to the culture of the institution.
  • Promote and deepen student's understanding of their own cultural heritage, ethnicity, and identity.
  • Educate the university community about diverse cultures, cultural differences, and the rich contributions of other cultures to the campus community.
  • Provide training in leadership and other skills for multi-ethnic students and for those seeking to assist them.
  • Provide a forum in which issues of diversity, ethnicity, identity, prejudicial attitudes/ behaviors, and cross-cultural communication can be broadly addressed in the campus community.
  • Enrich the educational experience of all students and model how to live in a multi-ethnic and inclusive world.
