Using the Multicultural Center

The Multicultural Center is now taking reservation requests. If you would like to host your club meeting once a month in the center or host your weekly meetings, contact Njeri Clement at We are open to working with students who are not a part of a club to host programs on identity, social justice, equity and inclusion. 

Meeting Resources

  • The center has a monitor and access to a sound system.
  • If a group needs other audio visuals, the group organizer will need to make their own audio request from IT. 
  • Everything in the center is on wheels and moveable. The space should easily adjust to meet your needs.
  • If food or drinks will be used in the space during an event, we ask that all guests help maintain a clean and healthy environment by disposing of all waste and recyclables. 
  • Food arrangements must be made through Becky at Consolidated Food Management Services. 

The Multicultural Center organizes cultural identity-based graduation events for graduating students to celebrate their culture and recognize the accomplishments of the graduating class. We invite you to participate in the Latinx, African, and African American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and Native American and other cultural graduation ceremonies.
