Inspiring Multicultural Understanding (IMU) empowers students and teachers to bring open dialogue about culture and race into schools. By supporting safe spaces for dialogue and learning, effective instruction based on existing resources, and networking, IMU enables students to become ambassadors for social justice and cross-cultural awareness.


A world community where we express our true selves and celebrate each other across language and culture.


To inspire young people to understand people of different cultures, and to address social justice issues in their lives and around the world. Through intercultural and leadership education, and events such as the International Day of Peace (IDP), youth will apply new skills and knowledge to better the world.


As a student-centered, social-justice organization, we:

  • Value diversity, creativity and fun
  • Communicate with honesty, curiosity and empathy
  • Act with transparency, kindness and non-violence
