Cultural Houses at Carleton College

One of the goals of the Office of Intercultural Life (OIL) is to create a sense of community among the students we serve. One of the ways we achieve this is through the Cultural House Community. OIL oversees four houses, each with a different mission that provides students with a safe and inclusive space to call their own. 

The Cultural Houses are designed to provide a culturally safe space for students of color, international students and their allies willing to contribute to an environment that facilitates academic and personal success. The Cultural Houses provide a variety of educational, cultural, and social programs related to specific cultures and issues, while simultaneously providing a cultural comfort-zone. All Carleton community members are encouraged to participate in all programs and meetings held at the houses: Asia House (Asian cultural house), Freedom House (African-American cultural house) and La Casa del Sol (Latin@ cultural house).
