PROVO – BYU Multicultural Services has teamed up with local psychologists to provide a Multicultural Forum for minorities at the university.
Studies show that students of color often feel rejected and isolated, which results in a negative mental and academic impact. Additionally, studies show that 80 percent of minority students perform better when they are comfortable in their environment. In order to facilitate this, BYU has began hosting a multicultural forum for minority students.
Attendees of the forum, like De’borah Alexis, feel that the forum has improved their BYU experience. Regarding the forum, Alexis stated, “I just feel like its a really good place to come and talk about the things that are going on around us.”
Although the forum began a few weeks ago, there are two more forum sessions over the coming weeks. Students and faculty invite others to join them on Tursdays at 4pm, in room 3280 in BYU’s Wilkinson Student Center.
