About the Multicultural, Diversity & Engagement (MADE) Center
The Multicultural Affairs, Diversity & Engagement Center is being designed for the members of the BCC community to learn about, explore, and challenge notions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. While a physical space is being created in the Student Engagement Center (SBA building), we are excited to be offering programs and resources in the meantime!
