Welcome to the Shippensburg University Office of Multicultural Student Affairs webpage. As you browse the page, I hope you will be excited and inspired by what you learn.

When I'm asked to describe the MSA I usually reply, "We are a family", a family who supports, advocated, challenges and encourages one another to succeed. Our mission is to educate and graduate students who will possess a vision for leadership and a will to excel. One of my favorite quotes is, "Mediocrity is not an option". MSA touches the lives of people who will shape the future.

We hope that you will visit us at our office, utilize our meeting rooms, and attend the events that we sponsor as well as those sponsored by our student groups.

Please feel free to contact me directly at dljeff@ship.edu if you would like to become involved with MSA or if you have ideas or suggestions!
