Resources for Multicultural & Special Education

Multicultural

National Multicultural Institute was founded in 1983 in response to our nation's growing need for new services, knowledge, and skills in diversity. NMCI is proud to be one of the most experienced organizations in the field of diversity training. NMCI's mission is to increase communication, understanding and respect among people of different racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and to provide a forum for discussion of the critical issues of multiculturalism facing our society. They accomplish this through conferences in the Spring and Fall and through individualized training and consulting programs.
