Multicultural Programs & Events
With students from 30 countries worldwide and almost every state, Taylor seeks to provide a home for our multicultural community through the Office of Intercultural Programs. Students from other cultures add a rich global dimension to campus, and it is incredibly valuable to the Taylor community. Still, we also recognize that an international student, American ethnic student, third-culture, or missionary kid might face additional obstacles and struggles in adjusting to life in Upland. We understand the extra layer of difficulties students from other cultures face and strive to serve in helping them to better adapt to a new college environment.
No matter your background or homeland, we hope you find community and support here, experience the beauty of God’s diversity, and enjoy amazing hospitality.
