King Intercultural Center
Concordia College's King Intercultural Center - named in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - offers space for conversation and reflection intended to elevate consciousness of the complexities and richness of the U.S. as one of the most pluralistic societies in history, and for cultivating world perspective and world peace.
We (re)designed this space to feel like a hybrid living room + tea shop with lounge furniture and café tables, a kitchen and computer work stations. Relaxing + familiar, and affording opportunities to interact with new people, perspectives, experiences. We hope you visit often.
Every Monday at 4 p.m. during the academic year, the Office of Intercultural Affairs hosts the King Center ^ Tea House, featuring a rotating menu of tea and food from around the world, and conversations and interactions with diverse community and campus leaders. Past Tea Houses have ranged from a panel dialogue on social justice + change in India, a celebration of the Kurdish New Year, a field trip to the Native American Center Project in Fargo, and a discussion on living abroad with former expats. Come and go as your schedule allows, and bring friends.
Diverse student organizations, including African Student Union (ASU), Black Student Union (BSU), Diverse Alliance, International Student Organization (ISO), Hip-Hop Congress, and Straight & Gay Alliance (SAGA) have designated the King Intercultural Center as their primary meeting place.
