Celebrating Cultures and Diversity

The International Relations Organization is open to all Otero College students interested in learning more about different cultures and people. Our mission is to facilitate interaction and promote the growth of understanding and acceptance between people from different cultural traditions and the community as a whole. We also are there to support and encourage each other as we learn and adjust to the people and cultures around us.

Our Goal

Members will become involved in campus life experiences that bring personal enrichment through culturally diverse opportunities. 


Membership into the International Relations Organization (IRO) is open to all students. Student who join IRO are interested in learning more about different cultures, meeting international people and visiting various countries. Otero embraces and celebrates the cultural diversity that international students bring to the campus as their influence and interaction with the campus community enriches learning and campus life for everyone.

IRO members work closely with the adviser to coordinate a number of intercultural activities on campus and throughout the area. Funds raised from those events go toward the Otero International Students Scholarship Fund.
