The Multicultural Center provides Jefferson students an opportunity to expand their collegiate experience outside of the classroom through cultural programming, diversity education, and development of cultural competence. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment for all students to explore their cultural identity while prioritizing advocacy efforts for traditionally marginalized students with community building and shared space.
Our vision is to remain a constant advocate for students at Jefferson Community and Technical College through our initiatives to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion across the university and throughout the Louisville Community.

Related to the mission of The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement, and in an effort to recognize and celebrate difference among ethnic and cultural groups on our campus, we acknowledge that the land on which we inhabit is the original ancestral homelands of the Shawnee, Cherokee, Yuchi, Chickasaw, Osage, and Kentucky tribal nations.
We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and pay respect to the many diverse Indigenous peoples - past, present, and future - still connected to this land.
Why we do a land acknowledgement?
