The overarching mission of the Multicultural Center is to contribute to the creation of a campus environment that is truly inclusive. That means a university which respects and affirms the equal human worth of every individual and of all distinctive groups of people. The MCC, therefore, is a uniquely welcoming place, where one is invited to communicate across lines of culture, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, class etc. The Center's moral and intellectual justification is rooted in the University's commitment to persons of different backgrounds, experiences, and origins.
The changing demographics of Southern California, coupled with "campus climate" issues, makes the concerns of all ethnic groups, as well as other distinct populations, of critical importance to the development of a truly multicultural university.
