International & Multicultural Programs
International & Multicultural Programs, a part of the Center for Campus Connections, at Palm Beach Atlantic University is here to help international and multicultural students like you to deepen your connection to PBA as well as to help you share your unique culture with our community.

It can be difficult to transition to college for any student, but PBA understands there can be additional challenges to adjusting if you are a first-year international, African American, Asian American, Hispanic or Native American student. This program connects you with a mentor — an upperclassman or a faculty or staff member who shares your interests and passions. Your mentor will help guide you as you transition to PBA, whether that’s helping you overcome academic challenges, make new friends, get involved on campus, or grow in your faith.
PBA offers more than 30 clubs and organizations — from social, to professional to religious. Many of these are designed just for international and multicultural students, including the International Business Club and A.L.I.C. (American Latino Intercultural Coalition).
If you are an international student, the Harry D. Menges Scholarship was created for you. Named in memory of Dr. Harry Dunbaugh Menges by his family, the scholarship recognizes international students who demonstrate a strong Christian faith and high academic achievement.
If you would like to create activities for your floor, team, club or class that focuses on the multicultural experience, our training programs can help you do just that. Simply contact us if you would like to learn more about these interactive, Bible-based programs.
Speaking of PBA...
“When students of different cultures leave their homes to come to America, they do feel homesick and like they do not fit in. The office made us feel welcomed and at home and like we were just as important as any other American student.”
