Intercultural Center for PEACE

Purpose

 

The Intercultural Center for PEACE (Promotion, Education, and Advancement of Cultures and Ethnicities) is a part of the Division of Student Affairs at the University of North Florida (UNF). The center contributes to the university’s mission by providing support services and personal growth for traditionally underrepresented students and collaborating with the UNF community to create an institution and campus for justice. ICP helps students adjust socially by providing a curriculum for personal growth and learning through student involvement in co-curricular activities. ICP strives to foster a learning environment that enriches a cultural, educational, and professional experience for all students. ICP wishes you success at UNF and we want you to know that we are here to help. 

Mission
