Engaging Columbia’s Multicultural Community!


One Tribe is a body of student representatives that addresses issues surrounding multiculturalism, inclusion, and social justice at the college.


  • Provide a forum to discuss multiculturalism, inclusion, and social justice issues that have an effect on the campus community.
  • Create events that engage the larger Columbia community in Multicultural Affairs and its student organizations.
  • Facilitate collaboration among student groups serving Columbia’s underrepresented students.
  • Propose initiatives that will improve diversity and contribute positively to the campus climate.


One Tribe Scholars


One Tribe Scholars are a select group of 10 Columbia College Chicago student ambassadors who work closely with the Multicultural Affairs office to actively engage the campus community in the exploration and articulation of multiculturalism, inclusion, and social justice issues. The Scholars are charged with identifying and amplifying the student voice regarding multicultural issues and creating understanding of and positive changes on these matters. Ultimately, the One Tribe Scholars program aims to prepare students to effectively integrate themselves into a global society, to appreciate the differences among all people, and to respectfully function collaboratively with others.
