About the MCC
In addition to housing the IIS Division offices, the Multicultural Center (MCC) is a gathering place for intellectual and cultural enrichment – where individuals, small groups and student organizations of all kinds can study, plan and organize together.
The MCC is used for meetings, special events and community-building activities with a multicultural flavor. Activities are supported by De Anza Student Government (DASG) funding – so please come and use this communal space!
Some of the activities here include:
- Asian Pacific American Leadership Institute
- Black Leadership Collective
- ¡LEAD! (Latinx Empowerment at De Anza)
- LGBTQ+ Community and Studies
- Women's Center
The MCC is also home to the Intercultural and International Studies Division, which includes a diverse array of instructional programs:
At the heart of the Center's programs are more than 100 faculty and staff members who facilitate students' understanding of the evolution of our current international community and examine this from a broad range of perspectives. Our goal is to ensure that every student will emerge from this program ready to serve as global citizens in the twenty-first century.

The goal of the Center is to provide an environment that recognizes cultural differences, respects cultural uniqueness, and facilitates cross-cultural interaction, learning and appreciation.
