"The MLC has helped me to branch out and discover new things on campus because I know that when I come back to the floor at the end of the day, it will feel like home." —Melinda, Multicultural LC

The Multicultural Learning Community is home to students who share a passion for exploring issues of diversity and social justice, developing a deeper appreciation for others, and becoming agents of social change. As a member of the community you will explore your own identity, confronting the realities of power, privilege, and oppression.
