About the community
The Multicultural Living Community is a racially and ethnically diverse community and 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.
- To help students better understand their own ethnic identities;
- To facilitate students having more accurate information and awareness of the intersection of identities especially with respect to the history, contributions, and experiences of the underrepresented populations (African-American, Native American, Latino, Asian American, LGBTQ+, etc.);
- To encourage residents to share the motto of "Diversity Means All of Us!"
This community is located in Chalmers Hall, a historically coeducational floor. Chalmers ground level and first floor serve as the Multicultural theme area for Roanoke college students that are interested in exploring multiculturalism, diversity and creating a cultural of belonging.
