How will your project impact Oberlin?

Continuing with our mission to serve as a resource for historical disenfranchised populations, the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) seeks to assist in covering the costs of sending members of marginalized communities to professional and educational conferences and to provide emergency funding for students who may otherwise face significant unexpected expenses.

The Multicultural Resource Center was founded with the intention to support the broader Oberlin College community by providing institutional and administrative structures necessary to support Oberlin's commitment to a diverse social and liberal arts environment.

We work with marginalized communities, which can include: people of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) communities, low-income, undocumented, international, differently-abled, and first-generation college students. The center also provides resources, education, and workshops for those generally interested in issues of diversity, inclusivity, and social justice.

Funds we raise will be used to offset training costs at the center, but more importantly to provide a resource for students who require emergency funding due to circumstances out of their control, such as return tickets to home in the case of family illness or for vital medical care. We also wish to assist in funding student travel to conferences that can provide opportunities to network in their chosen fields and to build community both outside and inside of Oberlin.
