Committee Description

The Martin Administration will advocate for the University to improve its ability to accommodate the needs of all marginalized students. The Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Outreach committee is the vehicle the Administration will use to accomplish this aim. UNC’s population is becoming increasingly more diverse, necessitating a better sense of urgency when it comes to understanding and responding to the needs of marginalized individuals. Through education, advocacy and implementation, MADO will make progressive change on campus.
