Social Justice Programming & Cross-Cultural Engagement

Welcome to Intercultural Engagement!



SPXCE Mission

With a student-centered approach, the Social Justice Programming & Cross Cultural Engagement Intercultural Center (SPXCE, pronounced "space") works to foster a more inclusive, equitable, and affirming MIT campus climate. As a collaborative initiative between the Office of Multicultural Programs, Women and Gender Services and LBGTQ+ Services, the SPXCE provides intersectional social justice education, support, community-building, and leadership development. The SPXCE serves as a place where students can feel at home and exist in their wholeness while exploring all of their identities authentically with compassion and care.

SPXCE Matters

This marks the arrival of a long-awaited, much needed, and well-deserved space for the OMP to advise 70+ student clubs in addition to supporting the Black Students' Union and Latino Cultural Center. LBGTQ Services staff will continue to work with LBGTQ communities and offer their signature recurring programs. Both offices offer intersectional training, events support, community, and advocacy for and regarding minoritized students.

Aside from the staff offices for OMP, Women and Gender Services and LBGTQ+ Services, the SPXCE also offers a social lounge, study space, chalk wall, kitchenette, computer lab, all-gender restroom, a projector and screens, moveable white boards, and information on additional campus and local resources.
