Two years later, the program was expanded to serve all of the ethnically diverse students on campus. The office is staffed with a coordinator who serves as a liaison between administration, students and the community and provides information and referral services for students. The Native American Tuition Waiver is offered each semester in limited numbers to those students who qualify. Multicultural awareness activities are planned each year. Students are encouraged to participate or offer input in the events.
