Multicultural & Diversity Resource Center

  • The Multicultural & Diversity Resource Center (MDRC) aims to advance a welcoming and inclusive learning environment where individual identities are valued and celebrated, fostering a sense of community among all members of Mt. Hood Community College.

    The MDRC provides a space dedicated to the well-being and success of all members of our community representing various backgrounds. Our work is rooted in social justice, recognizing and acknowledging that various communities across time have been historically marginalized; therefore, we work to dismantle systems of oppression through educational programming and intentionally support communities facing systemic barriers.

  • Welcome to the Multicultural & Diversity Resource Center!

We are here to advocate on behalf of our community, so let us know what you need to thrive on campus.
