The Intercultural Center at MMC is no ordinary student lounge — it’s a mission-driven community space for the next generation of social justice activists and the programming to jumpstart their creative change-making.
Here’s what visitors can expect throughout each semester in the IC:
As a part of the Intercultural Center’s mission to create space, belonging, and recognition for folx from marginalized identities, the Intercultural Center recognizes graduating seniors who identify as First Gen, as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and/or as a member of one of our cultural communities.
Our Senior Send Off Events are done once a year in the beginning of May prior to commencement to allow us time to prepare the items needed and capture as many graduates as possible. To receive a graduation stole and senior gift from the IC, graduating seniors are to sign up to participate in the event so they can be recognized and celebrated.
Sign Up for the May 2023 Senior Recognition Events can be found here: Senior Send Offs for Fall 22 and Spring 23 Graduates
