About the Multicultural Living Community 

The Multicultural Living Community is the only community of its kind on campus where a racially and ethnically diverse community is intentionally created so residents may live and learn in a multicultural environment. Residents are required to participate in co-curricular experiences that raise awareness about the impact of race and racism on individual identities, cross cultural communication, life opportunities, and various forms of social inequalities.

Juliet Jordan Lowery, Director of Multicultural Affairs, is the Advisor for the MLC.
