People over PSets: Multicultural Conference 2015 is coming soon!

Lots of news stories and stories of humanity have broken in our community, across our region, our nation, and across the globe these past few months.  Whether it was the attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris and the subsequent discussions of free speech and freedom of the press, or the work of MIT students, staff, and faculty to bring to campus discussions about the #blacklivesmatter movement, and how to transform that power into last change.

There are things we need to talk about, conversations we need to have, and topics we need to learn more about.

Unlike Ron Swanson, we actually want to talk to you about this issues.

MIT’s Student Activities Office and Office of Multicultural Programs hosts an annual Multicultural Conference (MC^2) which delves deep into the issues affecting our community and our globe, and we want you to join us this year!

Taking place at the Endicott House from Friday, Feb. 5th after class to the evening of Saturday, Feb. 6th, this conference will feature discussions around the topic of “People over Psets: Tools for Building Community,” and is a must-attend opportunity!

Grab a coffee, let’s chat.

Get your FEAST on!

No, we aren’t talking about Thanksgiving next week – we are talking about the THE FEAST!

Hosted by the Office of Multicultural Programs and the Student Activities Office, The Feast will feature food from a variety of local vendors that represent a wide array of cultures and culinary style.  There will be student performances from some of our very own cultural groups on campus, entertainment you will surely not want to miss!  There will also be a chance to win a gift card to some of the restaurants who will be providing food that evening.

We can’t wait to see everyone this Thursday from 4pm – 6pm on the 3rd Floor of W20!

Thank you to all the students, grad staff, staff, and vendors who are making this exciting event happen!
