Utilizing support from Title III funding, Concordia University Ann Arbor; has further established roots in our dedication to creating a campus community driven to serve all students through the development of The Center for Intercultural Affairs (CIA). The CIA is a designated physical space where students can connect, explore, and learn together. This facility will look for new and fresh ways to improve student involvement, cross-functional services and activities, and cultural celebrations of all student experiences.


The facility features three unique programming rooms with various set-up choices suited for small group discussions, training sessions, or recreational gatherings. The space also features TVs, WiFi, and podcasting equipment.

Please note: audio-visual support staff is not provided.
