This year Pacific University will be home to the newly renovated and restructured Student Multicultural Center (SMC) and its mission to provide a more welcoming environment to students of all backgrounds. The SMC, located on the first floor of Scott Hall in Room 107, has become a place for any and all students to come together in a safe space to hang out and talk about cultural differences they are dealing with.

“It’s an open and welcoming space for all students to come together,” junior Julio Montelongo, SMC Ambassador and Cultural Chair for the Activities and Cultural Events Board said.

Nine student ambassadors, all of who come from various and diverse backgrounds, help to fill out the staff of the SMC. They all hope to act as campus liaisons throughout the year on behalf of the SMC in the name of equity.

Narce Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, said she is proud of the work the SMC is doing and hopes to help promote and advocate more for different cultures on campus in the future.

“Many students of color at Pacific have been asking for a center like this and now they can have a place to go,” Rodriguez said.

According to Rodriguez, SMC Ambassadors hope to host events for students in the future and continue to get more involved in campus happenings, along with running the SMC itself. Student Ambassadors can be found from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday in the SMC.
