Welcome to the Center for Cultural Pluralism!
Our Mission & Philosophy
The Center for Cultural Pluralism (CCP) is an office of the Diversity & Equity Unit dedicated to helping UVM achieve its core mission to provide quality multicultural education in order to equip faculty, staff and students with the competencies necessary to function in a diverse world. The Center focuses on the intersections of issues of culture and social justice.
The Center offers a unique “Cultural Hub” where individuals and organizations working on behalf of cultural diversity and social justice issues can focus on collaboration and coalition efforts. The Center offers advising, consulting, educational programs and modest grants to further UVM’s strategic objectives linked to cultural diversity and social justice.
CCP faculty and staff provide resources and assistance to the UVM community, Burlington and the state of Vermont on issues of multicultural education, cultural awareness, prejudice reduction, and social justice.
The Center supports and initiates educational and social programs designed to raise awareness, expand understanding and knowledge and develop skills for effective intercultural communication.
