BE A MULTICULTURAL MAVERICK!

Looking for a unique way to get involved on campus? We are seeking energetic and creative students excited about designing activities that celebrate diversity at UT Arlington. The Multicultural Mavericks is a program designed to allow students to have a voice in shaping the heritage months on campus.

Specifically, the Multicultural Mavericks are a team of students who help create, plan, and implement:

  • Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15 – October 15)
  • Asian Heritage Month (November)
  • Black History Month (February)
  • Interested in Women’s History Month?  Please refer to Women in Leadership

An exciting opportunity awaits you!

  • All UT Arlington students are welcome. The Multicultural Mavericks are made up of a diverse group of students, and we welcome all those excited about the opportunity!
  • Committee members work together to brainstorm and implement ideas for heritage month events including social, cultural, educational, and philanthropic activities.
  • Members will work together to create and plan heritage month celebrations for campus. You may also elect to participate in additional sub-committees for special flagship events (e.g. Carnaval for Hispanic Heritage Month; One Night in Asia talent show for Asian Heritage Month, and the Black Leadership Institute for Black History Month).
  • Planning meetings are held from September through February.
  • Members are required to attend at least 5 events per semester. These can be chosen from a variety of activities including general body meetings, subcommittee meetings, and/or volunteering to assist at heritage month events. Exact calendar will be discussed at Member Retreat.
