As a presidential priority, the University of Delaware built the Center for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) to provide a physical space where students can interact, explore and grow together around social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
This space intends to enhance student engagement, support cross-functional services and programs and increase cultural celebration of identities and experiences
The Center for Intercultural Engagement is located in Suite 261 on the second floor of Perkins Student Center (former space of the Center for Counseling and Student Development).
