The Multicultural Center opened in 2000—the result of a student petition requesting the creation of a safe space on campus. The Multicultural Center serves as the home and meeting place for a number of different clubs and organizations, as well as the home base for students organizing events, rallies and awareness programs on campus.
The Multicultural Center hosts a number of programs and activities each year, including the annual trip to the Quechan Reservation in Yuma, AZ.
The Multicultural Center is open to all members of the campus community.
