Pro Statements

Reaffirming the MultiCultural Center will extend over 30 years of commitment to our communities and allow the MCC to continue to exist as a vanguard for equity, transformation, and liberation that centers collectivism, interconnectedness, hope, and healing for all.

The MCC serves as a bridge for the entire campus community and actively engages with intersectional social justice issues that deeply impact our communities and diverse identities through educational programming and community-building events. As a student-centered space, the MCC remains committed to foster equitable learning and building connections across campus.

The MCC was established by, and for, students in collaboration with the wider campus and surrounding community to provide a welcoming, brave space to combat all forms of discrimination. The MCC strives to ensure that students are thriving despite challenging circumstances through expanding services and providing resources to assist students in adapting to the university experience.

Voting yes to reaffirm the MCC’s lock-in fees will continue a wide range of events and programming which are open to the general public. Your support will allow the MCC to continue to provide free event spaces (150-seat theater, lounge, meeting room, and kitchen) equipped with tech support services for students, student employment and scholarships, free food and refreshments during study jams, and programming collaborations.

Voting yes to continue paying $3.72 for fall/winter/spring and $3.47 for summer (includes $0.99 for return-to-aid) will not increase the fees you already pay. Thank you for your continued support!
