Multicultural Student Services

The Office of Multicultural Student Services is committed to assisting students in achieving a successful college education in a diverse and culturally enriched environment. There are approximately 15 organizations which include the Latin American Student Organization (LASO), the Black Student Union (BSU), the University Gospel Choir, Gay Straight Alliance (GSA), Greek Lettered Latinos/as, and the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC).

The Black Student Union (BSU) has been an important component of Lewis University since 1968. The goal of the Black Student Union is to educate people historically, culturally, socially and politically about African-American culture and issues. The BSU is committed to diversity. It offers members the chance to get acquainted with other students and faculty, as well as the opportunity to participate in numerous activities.

The Latin American Student Organization (LASO) is a nationally recognized student organization at Lewis University. LASO is dedicated to promoting an awareness of U.S. Latino/Latina issues as well as an understanding of the Latin American culture through educational, social, and volunteer opportunities. LASO members attend leadership development conferences and foster a familial atmosphere in the organization and are open to anyone interested in learning more about Latino/a issues, Latino/a culture or ancestral roots.

In addition, the Office of Multicultural Student Services supports the Office of International Student Services and the activities of the International Student Association.
