The Student Development and Activities office hosts a variety of diversity and inclusivity programs throughout the academic year. With speakers, workshops, social, and cultural events, students have ample opportunity to immerse themselves in the college’s rich array of activities. The programs offer enhanced student learning and help students develop their sensitivity as citizens of a global society.
We continue to celebrate annual events like the programs listed below. In addition to heritage programming, the office of Student Development and Activities sponsors events related to current experiences. If you have a programming suggestion please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the calendar, Facebook, and the ‘What’s Happening at MMC’ tab for more events.
