Multicultural and Social Justice Programming

You belong at MCC!

At Mesa Community College, we believe that diversity must be at the center of who we are and what we do. We appreciate and respect each other’s differences as we work towards an equitable and inclusive environment on campus. Throughout the year, we celebrate culture, enrich learning, and work towards social justice through a variety of events and activities.
