Lasell's Intercultural Center and Commuter Cottage

The Intercultural Center and Commuter Cottage (IC3)  is located at 70 Maple Ave. It is a popular social gathering spots on campus, a vibrant hub for diverse students from every background to meet up,and have fun. All who bring an attitude of inclusivity and respect are welcome here and are encouraged to use the Intercultural Center to connect with one another, plan or participate in intercultural events, and advance social justice issues.

Lasell recognizes that diversity in student body, faculty, and staff is vital to a quality education. Thus, the Intercultural Center promotes cross-cultural understanding and inclusivity through respectful social engagement and multicultural programming in a diverse and welcoming environment.  Through learning about one another and experiencing different cultures, traditions, perspectives and views, the Intercultural Center is just one way Lasell prepares its students interact and succeed in an increasingly diverse and global environment.
