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 Center for Student Involvement and the Simmons Center strives to support the overall mission of the college in its efforts to provide a variety of academic and co-curricular opportunities that engender the advancement of our community’s core values. We aim to create an engaged and inclusive environment by fostering holistic experiences that connect our students to one another.
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.
