Multicultural Student Success Programs

Our multicultural student success programs empower students of all identities, especially students with identities that have been historically marginalized. We accomplish this by providing and connecting students to resources that promote holistic success to build a sense of belonging. Our program aims to help historically underrepresented and underserved populations finish school by providing educational opportunities and outstanding programming that enriches their experiences and fosters a supportive environment for them to live, learn, and grow as active members of MHCC and as people.

  • Personal guidance, advising, and advocacy
