In late fall 2019, the Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion (CMEI) formed as a new department in the Center for Equity and Student Achievement (CESA). Charged with embedding equity and inclusion in student engagement, the new department consists of the former Office of Student Activities (OSA) with the former Center for Multicultural Excellence and Inclusion. The CMEI’s footprint now spans both the Tivoli and the Jordan Student Success Building and our new website is https://www.msudenver.edu/cmei/. The website for the former Office of Student Activities will be taken down for the start of spring semester 2021.
