MSA's Mission

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) supports and empowers Iowa State University's students who self-identify as African American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi American, Latinx, Native American/Alaskan Native and/or Multiracial, and advocates for their holistic development across the University.

MSA Logo. Advocacy. Community. Dialogue. Inclusion. Learning. Justice.


Adopt these behaviors on campus and in the community for a successful Fall 2020 Semester: wear a face covering, physically distance 6 feet (2 meters) apart, wash and/or sanitize your hands often and stay home if you are ill. 


The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs is open daily (Monday - Friday) from 8:00a - 5:00p.  We are closed for lunch from Noon - 1:00p.

The Crazy Life of A Mexican Warr;or is a YouTube video series that was created by, yours truly! I was nominated by Brian Behnken to do a collaboration with Iowa State’s MSA (Multicultural Student Affairs) Office, as well as their student website blog, The Hype, to produce a post of my experience as a Multicultural college student and, of course, as an Iowa State Student.
