Multicultural Community

We believe all Taylor students are better prepared for the future by interacting with a diverse global community. That’s why the Department of Intercultural Leadership and Church Relations exists: to help students build connections on campus that will make them more effective intercultural leaders and Christ-followers. Here’s how we do it:

  • Keep God at the center of the work we are doing
  • Build on strengths of the individuals and the organization
  • Celebrate and engage in intercultural & church relations efforts
  • Recognize the struggles experienced by others
  • Provide amazing hospitality as we care for each other
