My Simmons

Meet the Staff

The Multicultural Center is staffed by Director, EriKa Monfort (She/Her Series), who joined the Simmons community last January as the Coordinator of the Multicultural Center. The Center seeks to shape a strong community among students of color while promoting an understanding of cultural multiplicity, humility, and intersectionality for the Simmons community as a whole.

The mission and vision of the Multicultural Center is supported by Simmons administration, faculty, and staff from the President’s Advisory Council on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity, the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of Organizational Culture, Inclusion, and Equity (OCIE) as well as various academic departments. The Multicultural Center is part of OCIE whose mission is to make Simmons the most inclusive campus in New England.
