A Warm Welcome from the Director

mcc-logo-med-blackHello, I’m Zaveeni Khan-Marcus, Director of the UCSB MultiCultural Center. Thank you for checking out the MCC website! It will give you an insight into the many services provided for you by the MCC.

The MultiCultural Center has been at the forefront of change for 27 years educating and empowering, and advocating for marginalized communities. Through the medium of high-powered educational programming, the MCC has been an agent for change on campus and in the greater Santa Barbara area. By partnering with academic departments, departments within the division of Student Affairs, and student groups, the Center conceptualizes and presents scholarly programs, performances, art shows, and facilitated discussions that enhance our awareness and inclusivity of all people.

Everything the MCC does rests on this belief: the right to dignity, equality, and inclusivity for marginalized communities is fundamental. Realization remains a challenge in a climate where systemic and institutional inequities prevail, and the struggle for validation and valuing of minoritized voices continues.

This is your Center - a space known as a "home away from home" for many students of color and other marginalized communities. It is also a space where critical conversations take place in addition to being a place to study, hold meetings, and have social events. We invite you to participate in the Center's vibrant and engaging space and we look forward to welcoming you at the MCC.
