The Multicultural/Diversity Center(MCDC) is a student support service established to increase diversity at Dixie State Universtiy via the recruitment and retention of students from diverse backgrounds and the enrichment of campus life through cultural and awareness activities. The MCDC accomplishes this goal through scholarship opportunities, community outreach, academic advisement, and diversity club participation. The MCDC operates under the principle that every person's unique life experiences enrich campus life and adds a profound element to a true education. We invite ALL DSU students to participate in the MCDC events, to promote diversity and to celebrate their own cultural identities as well as those of others. Again, the MCDC is open to all students. Please take your time to explore our website and feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or suggestions. We also invite you to stop by the MCDC to further see how we can assist you.
