Multicultural Resource Center
The Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) seeks to prepare all students to work actively toward equity by providing knowledge, dispositions and skills for acceptance and inclusion among diverse groups. The MRC offers all students, especially those from traditionally underrepresented groups at WCTC, a safe place to call their own. The center focuses on:
- Student involvement
The MRC promotes cross-cultural communication, awareness and understanding through programs, events and leadership development. The MRC’s goal is to create a community that recognizes challenges and transforms individual attitudes toward difference, while learning to celebrate the rich contributions of all cultures.
MRC Student Organizations
The MRC works closely with WCTC’s multicultural student organizations: the Asian Student Organization, LatinX Student Organization, Black Student Organization, Student Alliance For Equality (S.A.F.E., an LGBTQ organization) and the Campus Christian Ministry Club.
Student Mentoring Program
The center houses the Multicultural Student Mentoring Program (MSMP), which serves underrepresented students. It supports students of color, LGBTQ, first-generation and undocumented students to ensure their success at WCTC.
The MSMP offers academic support and access to peer mentors, encourages critical life skills through monthly leadership workshops to promote self-advocacy, promotes community engagement, and encourages participation in leadership conferences and social events — all in an effort to help students feel supported during their time at WCTC.
