Department Overview

The Intercultural Center (IC) provides programs and services that support the personal and intellectual development of Asian American, Latinx/e, Multiracial, Native American, Black, Queer (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender), low-income, international, students with disabilities, and first-generation college students at Swarthmore College. In addition, the IC promotes systemic change toward a multicultural perspective across the institution, and fosters community-building and collaboration among diverse groups both within and outside of the college.

Fall Masquerade Ball

In the Fall of 2022, the IC intern team hosted a Masquerade Ball in Sproul Hall, welcoming all of the Intercultural Center Collective Groups to come make masks and then wear those masks at a dance held in the IC Dome!
