The Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) serves as a collaborative hub for historically underrepresented communities specifically, diversity, and inclusion generally at Oberlin College. Working together with faculty, students, alumni, staff, and members of the community, the MRC is uniquely positioned to create a vision of diversity that fosters educational excellence.
The MRC supports the academic and personal needs of historically underrepresented students, especially students of color, LGBTQQIA, differently abled, international, first generation, and lower income students. At the same time, the MRC creates opportunities for the entire campus community to engage with interdisciplinary and intersectional discourses on diversity and develop critical thinking skills that are crucial for the educational experience of all students.
"The MRC plays a key role in developing and supporting the richly diverse community that is Oberlin... I expect the MRC will remain a linchpin in our efforts to broaden multicultural understanding on campus for many years to come."
— Nancy Dye, Oberlin College's 13th president
"The MRC is for everyone who is committed to working together to build a stronger and more socially just community at Oberlin College!"
— Eric Estes, former associate dean/MRC director
