Focus on Diversity
You can be yourself at MCLA, developing confidence and comfort in your authenticity and ability to make a real contribution to the world. Diversity is an integral part of the liberal arts mission, reinforcing the role that MCLA plays as an agent of social change in our work toward respect, acceptance, and justice for citizens in a democratic society.
ALANA is a commonly used acronym to refer to students of African-American, Latino/a, Asian-American, and Native American heritage. Our Multicultural Education Resource Center offers a number of opportunities for ALANA students to build a strong community.
To connect with the MCLA community, please become a fan of MCLA Ambassadors on Facebook.
MCLA understands the importance of raising students' aspirations to achieve a higher education. It is our commitment and pleasure as a state university to provide access to our campus. Therefore, we strongly encourage group visits to our campus, especially for non-profit organizations and college access groups (such as Upward Bound, TRIO, Gear Up, Bottom Line, etc.). Saturday visit requests are also welcomed and are arranged on a case-by-case basis.
Group visits include a student-led campus tour, information session with a small panel of students, and a reduced-price meal option for students who are first-generation or receive free or reduced-price lunches.
To make reservations or to join our mailing list please contact Natasha Robinson at N.Robinson@mcla.edu.
