Office of Multicultural Affairs
On November 21, 1968, at the request of Dr. Gordon Blake, faculty members from Kearney State College met to discuss the growing international student population and how to best serve them. This meeting lead to the formation of the International Students Association and the Spring Festival. The Office of International Education in Student Affairs was formed in 1989 and then split in 1995 into the Office of International Education and the Office of Multicultural and International Student Services.
UNK Archives and Special Collections was offered the older materials of the Office of Multicultural Affairs to ensure their longevity and to provide access to students and researchers. The collection includes scrapbooks, correspondence, new clippings, and publications as well as audio and digital files.
