Programming Council

The Multicultural Center coordinates a Multicultural Programming Council (MPC) that functions as the advisory board to the Multicultural Center and its programs. The council consists of student leaders of multicultural groups who provide input on events and initiatives developed and supported by the Multicultural Center. The council also provides workshops, advisement and funding to student groups. For more information, contact LaToya Harden.

MPC members’ responsibilities include:

  • Attending MPC meetings biweekly (meeting time determined by member schedules)
  • Serving on the MPC for the 2018-2019 year
  • Volunteering for at least one Multicultural Center event per semester
  • Serving on the MPC Funding Committee which meets twice per semester to provide guidance and collaborate with staff on funding decisions for student organizations
  • Creating ad-hoc committees as needed to review and provide advisory feedback to the Multicultural Center staff
  • Assisting the Multicultural Center with outreach and marketing of programs and services

Advising and Leadership
The MPC and MPC Funding Committee are advised by Multicultural Center advocacy and student success staff who will be directly involved in building and supporting the organization. The MPC will function as a student initiative of the Multicultural Center.

Student Organization Funding
In order to encourage student engagement in actively fostering respectful and meaningful intercultural and cross-cultural relationships on campus, the Multicultural Programming Council Funding Committee provides funding to student groups seeking to develop and host cultural programs and events in line with the mission of the Multicultural Center.
For more information on obtaining funding, see the Multicultural Programming Funding Application.
