Multicultural Resource Center

The MRC advocates the belief that – with the support of MRC staff and programs – each individual is unique, and we recognize those individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs or other ideologies. The MRC promotes the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.

The center seeks to prepare all students to work actively toward equality by providing the knowledge, dispositions and skills for acceptance and inclusion among diverse groups of people.

Throughout the year, the center coordinates and sponsors a wide variety of programs and events such as guest speakers, films, lectures, artistic performances, conferences, courses and workshops. These enhance leadership skills, enrich the academic experience, celebrate cultural traditions, and explore social and cultural issues. We also serve as an advocate for students and provide support for students, staff and faculty.

Stop by for a visit and meet our friendly staff and learn more about our services, programs and events. Our center provides a safe and ideal place to study, relax between classes or visit with friends. Everyone is welcome and treated with respect. We are located in the College Center (behind the main entrance).

Philosophy

Diversity enriches the educational experience. We learn from those whose experiences, beliefs, and perspectives are different from our own, and these lessons can be taught best in a richly diverse intellectual and social environment.
