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.
21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge
The Office of Belonging and Community Engagement invites you to participate in the 21-day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge this month. The challenge is designed to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity one day at a time. For 21 days, do one action to build your awareness and understanding of these topics by reading, listening, watching, and engaging with various resources to guide you through your personal racial equity journey. Feel free to use the tracking chart provided on the linked page to help hold yourself accountable. With a wealth of resources available, you may repeat this challenge as many times as you would like, as it is important to do the personal work of recognizing your own power and privilege in order to create meaningful progress in social and racial justice work.

Related to the mission of The Office of Belonging 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.
The Multicultural Center is located on the Downtown Campus in the Chestnut Hall, Room B14
