Berkshire Community College (BCC) recognizes the diversity within our communities and has made a strong commitment to cultural diversity within its student body. While we are a relatively small college, BCC reflects the diversity of our local communities and the world. BCC's students are a combination of various social, economic, religious, political, national, ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds. In addition to students from local communities and neighboring states, BCC is the choice for students from over 20 different countries representing Asia, Africa, Europe, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

The Multicultural Student Services Organization provides leadership in creating a welcoming and engaging campus for students from ethnically and culturally diverse backgrounds so that they are able to thrive and achieve their full potential.

We invite you to visit our office whether you need to inquire about your educational journey, want to express concerns or have ideas that promote cross cultural understanding.

All international students with an F-1 visa are required to subscribe to the instant email notification in order to stay as informed as possible in matters regarding their college/visa status. MSSO members can also have access to a dedicated site where they can get the latest information on MSSO projects and participate in online discussions.
