  7. Diversity Relations

The Diversity Relations team strives to promote cultural understanding, sensitivity, and overall respect for all backgrounds. We support MPTC students through services, resources, and activities on all our campuses. Diversity Relations provides an opportunity for students to address academic and social barriers, connect with likeminded peers, and participate in educational and cultural experiences.

How can we help?

Our team can offer support and resources, both at MPTC and in the community, for:

  • Students of all racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds
  • LGBTQ+ students
  • Veterans & military-connected students
  • Undocumented students & Dreamers
  • Parenting & caregiving students
  • Multicultural & multilingual students
  • Students experiencing poverty, homelessness, or other struggles with basic needs
  • & more!

We can also connect you with other MPTC services!
