About the MCC
What exactly does "multiculturism" mean? It means the creating, guaranteeing, and encouraging of spaces in which different multicultural communities are able to grow at their own pace. At the same time, multiculturism is a public space in which these communities are able to interact and enrich the existing culture without relinquishing any part of their own culture. The result is the creation of a new community in which they recognize reflections of their own racial or ethnic identity.
The Office of Multicultural Services is an administrative department within the Division of Academic and Student Affairs. The physical location of the department is in the K.U. Multicultural Center, and you can learn more about how to reach the Center's location here. All operations and functions of the Center are preformed through Multicultural Services, though the two terms are often used interchangeably in the community as well as in the department.
The Center is open during the academic semester Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
You may visit the Center to study in the Universal Resource Room any time during the hours stated above. Some of the rooms within the Center are available to reserve meeting space for smaller events such as group gatherings or workshop presentations. Room reservation priority is given to student organizations and programs that focus on multiculturalism and diversity.
