      This space, located in the SLC is for indigenous students, students of color and their affiliated student organizations to gather. Diversity, equity and inclusion related events and programming, as well as UMR club and organization meetings will be held here. All are welcome into the space with the understanding that the Intercultural Student Center came as a recommendation from the UMR community, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee as a result of the murder of George Floyd, the COVID-19 pandemic, and persistent and systematic racism.
