Uniting students across difference to develop genuine relationships, build community, and promote student success.

Round Table Discussion

Join Us For RTD

So much is happening in our local and global communities. Round table discussions are a space on Michigan State’s campus to explore a variety of topics among a diverse group of people. Topics range from educational inequality to immigration to mental health issues. Come lend your voice to the discussion and learn from other perspectives.

ICAs and Participants at Service

Serve Your Community

Each semester, ICAs partake in a community service event in the Greater Lansing or Detroit area. Talk to your neighborhood ICA to look how you could serve too.

Interpersonal Relationships

Intercultural Aides also build community with residents on their floors. From conversations about students’ first year at college to attending cultural events, Intercultural Aides support students through genuine relationships. Knock on your ICA’s door and join the community.
