Mission:

The Multicultural Center engages the entire campus community to create a climate of inclusion, social justice, equity, access for underserved students and develops programs that support retention and student success and transforms the college community and the institution.

 

The Multicultural Center, which is housed in the Center for Equity and Engagement, provides an opportunity for people of all cultures to meet, explore their cultural origins and to work toward understanding, respect and appreciation for the diversity within our campus community and society.

 

The Multicultural Center promotes student academic success and personal empowerment. Students meet to study and to socialize; they are able to utilize computers with Internet access, discuss academic and multicultural information and share multiple perspectives.

 

The Multicultural Center offers lectures, workshops and special events that are designed for staff and community members to develop and enhance their multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills.
