The Office of Intercultural Student Engagement provides an array of educational lectures, co-curricular programs and workshops, and student leadership opportunities that promote diversity and enhance intercultural understanding. Most events are open to the entire UNE community and many are open to the general public as well. 

UNE Diversity Lecture Series

The UNE Diversity Lecture Series brings speakers and programs to both campuses that critically examine issues of diversity, equity, and justice, and promote a more diverse and culturally pluralistic community. Past speakers include government officials, activists, businesspeople, authors, artists, professors, and students. Learn more

Workshops and Trainings

Workshops and trainings on a variety of content areas related to cultural diversity are available, including in-class lectures. Interested faculty, professional staff, or student organizations should contact ISE for more information.
