Multicultural Experiences and Global Opportunities
At University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis, we focus on cultural awareness and the importance of interacting with people from diverse backgrounds.
It’s what makes our students better health care providers and truly educated people.
From providing free health screenings in the St. Louis community to partnering with local organizations to provide children living with Type 1 diabetes with a fun, sugar-free Halloween, we are committed to helping the medically underserved and building stronger, healthier communities.
Our students build upon those local experiences and expand their horizons through international experiences and outreach.
These experiences showcase the global impact our students can have as health care providers and professionals.
The Multicultural Center provides a dedicated space for an inclusive, nondiscriminatory, safe and welcoming environment for the entire campus community.
The Multicultural Center works to connect and engage the wider community through activities and thoughtful panel discussions on a variety of topics, providing a supportive and enriching space for growth, learning and leadership at the University.
