About the Multicultural Center (MCC) 

In 2014 student leadership within the Associated Students of Diablo Valley College (ASDVC) and Diversity Affairs Committee (DAC), identified a need for more inclusive campus space for students. With a committed, steady effort in partnership with the College, the Multicultural Center was developed and implemented.

The MCC provides an inclusive space to promote dialogue, advocacy and solidarity within a social justice framework while encouraging positive interaction and growth among students, staff faculty, and the community at large.
