Throughout the year, MSOE holds a variety of multicultural events that celebrate cultures from around the globe. These events and celebrations help us learn about new cultures, share new experiences and gain a better understanding of the diverse backgrounds that make up our campus community.
Visit the Event Calendar to see the upcoming multicultural events.
MSOE encourages students, faculty and staff to acknowledge the Indigenous land in which we reside. A land acknowledgement serves to recognize the significant history of land taken from Indigenous ancestors and brings awareness to the ongoing work that needs to be done combating colonialism. We aim to celebrate the Indigenous communities that are woven into the fabric of campus. A land acknowledgment can be read at the start of a ceremony or campus event. Take some time to practice the pronunciations of the tribes and reflect on the purpose of reading it. To learn more about land acknowledgments, visit nativegov.org/resources.
MSOE’s Land Acknowledgement, authored by Dr. Patrick Jung: “We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the land the MSOE campus occupies. We acknowledge in Milwaukee that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe people, particularly the Potawatomis as well as the Ojibwas and Ottawas, all three of whom composed the United Bands of the Potawatomis, Ojibwas and Ottawas in southeastern Wisconsin. We honor the history and the people of this land.”
Dr. Patrick Jung is a professor in MSOE’s Humanities, Social Science and Communication Department. His areas of specialization are Indian-white relations in the Great Lakes region and 20th century German art history.
