The Multicultural House serves as a space where students of all backgrounds may meet and engage in various learning opportunities presented by faculty, staff and student groups. The House sponsors and co-sponsors programs year round such as movie screenings, trainings, discussion groups, ceremonies, cultural celebrations, talk backs, and receptions.
The House serves to foster mutual respect and understanding among - and for all - people of different cultures, backgrounds, experiences and worldviews, and to help the college achieve its stated commitment to diversity. Students, faculty and staff create and implement learning experiences that promote social, cultural and educational programs that advance pluralism and inclusivity across the campus. All involved act to make our community more socially just be cause we recognize the dignity and worth of every person.
The Multicultural House features audio/visual equipment for facilitating presentations and accessing multimedia. The lower level serves as a multipurpose room perfect for group meetings, performances, movie screenings, presentations and much more. The upper/main floor features a full conference room, library, lounge space, kitchen, dining space and patio for outdoor gatherings.
Faculty, staff and student groups can reserve space in the Multicultural House using EMS however priority is given to programs that support the mission of the Multicultural House.
