Multicultural & Diversity Center

Multicultural & Diversity Center



The Multicultural & Diversity Center is a dynamic and inclusive place that supports all students in their academic and personal journeys at the college. We do this by creating community, home away from home, and a safe place for cultural expression, cross-cultural learning, access to college and dignity resources, and social justice work opportunities. The Center is committed to retention and student success by offering activities related to leadership development, student connectedness and student equity. We are a student-centered program that fosters respect for all people.

Student Ambassadors

Our Mission

We share our stories in an effort to encourage our audience to feel empowered by their personal experiences, leading to a more inclusive environment at College of the Redwoods. 

Our Values

Integrity: We strive to tell our own personal truths, through our experiences.

Inspiration: We hope to motivate others in an effort to spread multiculturalism, equity and social justice.

Inclusivity: We envision College of the Redwoods to uphold the same standards of diversity that our program does. 


The College of the Redwoods Multicultural Leadership Ambassador Program provides a unique opportunity for students to take an active role on campus by discussing their personal narratives in correlation with diversity related topics.

The Ambassadors work toward changing perspectives and breaking down stereotypes, while promoting the genuine celebration of differences and encouraging multicultural awareness across cultures and in everyday settings. Ambassadors are responsible for facilitating diverse conversations through presentations and open discussions in classrooms. Their presentations are free and available to instructors on campus. Ambassadors are some of our most involved students and become part of a close-knit, diverse, and vibrant group.

Presentation topics include immigration, understanding differing cultures and culture shocks, LGBT experiences, religion, allyship, physical, mental and emotional abuse, education, challenges facing minority groups, family dynamics, socioeconomic status, mental health, first generation college student experiences, and the challenges that come with growing up in a single parent household
