The Multicultural Center library resources have been collected to strengthen students’ knowledge around a variety of beliefs, values and experiences of diverse cultural identities and to enhance the skills they will need to work and live as global citizens and leaders in society. The Multicultural Center has a growing collection of resources focusing on specific cultural communities, culturally responsive teaching and diversity training.
A Resource for Students:
The Multicultural Center library is full of reference books, novels, magazines and videos on different cultural communities around the world! The collection consists of African American, Asian, Hispanic or Latino, LGBTQIQA, Middle Eastern and Native American culture and history. The checkout process is fairly easy with a Panther ID card. However, the library is very conducive to readers who like to sit down, browse or relax.
A Resource for Faculty:
Faculty who are looking for unique classroom activities can encourage their students to attend Conversations on Contemporary Social Concerns and book discussion events. Faculty can promote cross-cultural experiences by reserving books, articles and videos that can be accessed by their students. These are great ways to facilitate learning and discussion outside the classroom.
