The mission of the Multicultural Conference (MC2) is to bring students together across race, ethnicity, gender, religion, nationality, socioeconomic status, ability, sexual orientation, and other aspects of cultural identity. This year’s theme is “Standing Out & Fitting In: Navigating MIT’s Cultural Landscape“. The event is free and open to all MIT students. MC^2 will be held Friday, February 24 through Saturday, February 25, 2012 with students spending the night at the luxurious MIT Endicott House.The conference offers a provocative day of workshops, speakers, community building, action, and reflection centered on issues of culture, identity, and social justice at MIT and beyond.
Participants will engage in an honest, open, and interactive dialogue about the cultural climate at MIT, learn from people’s experiences, and develop plans to cultivate a campus environment that promotes equality, not simply tolerance. As MIT’s mission statement clearly promotes a diverse campus community, it is crucial students to discuss the role of diversity and inclusion in education and campus life.
