Q. Have you ever wondered what it would take to help MIT grow in areas of multiculturalism, diversity, or social justice?
Q. Are you curious about aspects of identity and what role they play in people’s experiences on campus?
Q. Would you like to learn and develop more diversity-related skills and cross-cultural competencies?
Q. Do you wish you had more of a voice around issues of diversity and inclusion at the Institute?
If you answered yes or are curious about these questions, then we invite you to attend this year’s Multicultural Conference (MC^2).At the conference, we will facilitate an honest, open, and interactive dialogue about the cultural climate at MIT, learn from people's experiences, and develop plans to cultivate a campus environment that promotes equality, not simply tolerance. As MIT's mission statement clearly promotes a diverse campus community, it is crucial for students to discuss the role of diversity and inclusion in education and campus life.
The mission of the Multicultural Conference is to bring students together across race, ethnicity, gender, religion, nationality, socioeconomic status, ability, sexual orientation, and other aspects of cultural identity. The conference offers a provocative day of workshops, speakers, community building, action, and reflection centered on issues of culture, identity, and social justice at MIT and beyond.
MC^2 is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Programs and Student Activities Office.
