About the Multicultural Center

MCC Fair Home

The Multicultural Center seeks to provide a diverse range of programs and opportunities that are educational, recreational, social and cultural. Committed to supporting and promoting multicultural awareness, the staff develops programs that increase understanding and appreciation of cultural differences by familiarizing the campus community with the contributions and histories of African American, Hispanic/Latino American, Asian American, and Native American cultures. The Center serves as a place where cultural teaching and learning are the focus of all programs and activities. Its focus is intercultural, and provides a place where members of the university community, representing a variety of backgrounds, participate in programs and activities. All programming for the Center is designed to increase human understanding through the study and expression of culture.

(Baker University Center, 2nd Floor)

Jones, a Southeastern Ohio Native, pours his real-life experience into his work, which represents both the natural and holistic need to escape, as well as the many layers of the human experience.

Conjuring the artistic influence of British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, Jones seeks to contrast the mundanity of the professional world he has experienced with the effusion and movement of nature as represented in the colors and textures of his paintings.
