The Multicultural Centre (MCC) is an education, lobbying, support and referral service, which is open to all Lakehead University students regardless of ethnic background. The MCC hosts events which acknowledge and celebrate the cultural diversity at Lakehead and around the world. Right now, we are working on a series of interactive diversity nights on campus. These nights will be multidimensional and may take the form of workshops, concerts and cultural dinners.
In addition to awareness the Centre is a place of advocacy and action!
This year the MCC will work hard to connect Lakehead students with opportunities to support the humanitarian and social justice causes that they care about. We hope to provide a welcoming and inclusive space where students can discuss issues such as cultural identity, racism and international development concerns.

“Even when we interact daily with people of other ethnic groups, we rarely talk about racial issues.
It seems too scary to people. But we must start doing it! We have to break down the barriers between us and talk openly, honestly, and with respect.
The rewards far outweigh any concerns we may have.”
