The Simmons Multicultural Center provides a variety of quality support services, plan and drive educational and entertaining cultural awareness programs, and provide leadership opportunities through student involvement and service.
The Simmons Center staff contributes to the development of all Florida Southern College students by promoting diversity and adhering to the tenants of The Cornerstone.
The Evett L. Simmons Center for Multicultural Appreciation provides faculty, staff, and students with programming that promotes multiculturalism, social justice, and emphasizes the importance of inclusion. Our international student population adds to the dynamic of multiple cultures and identities within the FSC Community. By providing educational opportunities through cultural awareness events and sensitivity trainings, the Simmons Center raises awareness and ultimately creates a unified community that values all cultures.
The Simmons Center collaborates with the Multicultural Student Council and other campus organizations to sponsor diversity programming that includes Hispanic Awareness Celebrations, International and Cultural Awareness events, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration, Black History Month programs, Women’s History Month celebration and other diversity events.
Not only did we receive a new name after a beloved trustee and alumni of Florida Southern, but also a new office in a house that international and multicultural students love to call home!
In addition to administrative offices, the Simmons Multicultural Center is home to the International Student Association and the Multicultural Student Council.
