Welcome to the Multicultural Resource Center!  

Born out of student activism, the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) works to support students of color at Amherst College by interrogating systems of racial inequity, promoting racially just communities, and honoring the historic and present-day resilience of people of color. The MRC is centrally located in Keefe Campus Center and exists as part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Our resources include:

  • A space for students to hang out, build community, study, eat, host meetings, and engage in dialogue
  • Programs and workshops on race, racism, racial identity, and social justice
  • Student staff to manage the space and facilitate conversation
  • Opportunities for students to volunteer and learn about racial justice work
  • Support for student affinity groups and student leaders
  • Lending Library with hundreds of books on topics including Asian American Studies, Black Studies, Critical Race Studies, Indigenous Studies, Latinx Studies, Whiteness, and more
  • Free printing, coffee, tea, and snacks
