Our Mission is to Promote an Inclusive Climate for Utah’s Multicultural Communities.
Our Vision is to Be a Model State by Ensuring Equitable Resources and Services to all Utahns.
The Multicultural Affairs Office was created by executive order in January 2012. During the 2019 legislative session, a housekeeping bill codified the Office thereby renaming and structuring it as the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs under the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts, and solidifying its integral role in state law. The Division recognizes the importance of developing relationships with the many different communities throughout Utah in order to achieve its important mission.
