Office of Intercultural Education


The Office of Intercultural Education (OIE) is a center that offers programs, advising and support to the Bates College community through programming, events and community building. The center is intentionally a welcoming environment for all interested Bates students where we have comfortable lounge spaces, a conference room, a community kitchen, and much more.

It is our hope that students find the center to be a space where they can not only be themselves, but also learn from and with others from differing backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We look forward to supporting students in their journey at Bates and beyond.
