A word from the director:
It is with excitement to join the MultiCultural Center and the dedicated, committed, talented team who is championing equity and social justice for our campus and outlying community. As I begin a new chapter with UCSB, our work towards equity and social justice is imperative and central as I serve as the MCC Director. As a part of the meet and greet, I would also like to listen at this gathering for all UCSB community members and stakeholders. Aligning with the mission of the MultiCultural Center, I want to truly understand what our undergraduate scholars and partners are thinking and share your visions as it relates to equity, justice and a sense of belonging. I think for me it’s so important to really assess, to really listen to what our needs and concerns are of our community.
