About Multicultural Affairs

Multicultural Affairs Mission: MCA is dedicated to providing a friendly environment that promotes and encourages a greater appreciation of respect and inclusion of social difference. We offer co-curricular programs that are designed to encourage free expression and discussions of issues related to the creation of a multi-ethnic, culturally conscious university.

History: Created in 1994 by a coalition of students, faculty and staff, the MCA strives to address and redress the legacies of exclusion and separation on campus and in the nation, while contributing to the advancement of democratic inclusion, social justice and meaningful equality. Originally housed in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building (SBS) and later to Welch Hall, MCA moved in January of 2007 into the Loker Student Union.

Celebrating our Diversity: CSUDH is ranked as one of the most diverse college campuses in the nation (US News and World Report). In addition, we have a strong international program which includes students representing 108 different countries.
