Multicultural Enrichment Council

The vision of the Multicultural Enrichment Council (MEC) is to:

  • Help create and implement multicultural experiences for faculty, staff, students, and the community.
  • Identify and facilitate participation by faculty, staff, and students in existing multicultural enrichment opportunities throughout our greater Richmond area.
  • Educate the college community on the importance of fairness and inclusiveness, and on the acceptance of differing views, beliefs, opinions, and perspectives of other people—both inside and outside of the classroom.
