Multicultural community

Multicultural community

Ever wish you could “unlearn” something? An attitude that you just can’t seem to shake? Or maybe you want to learn more about different people, places and cultures?

Either way, at Calvin you can be part of a really big project—helping to make God’s vision for a healthy multicultural community a reality. Here are just a few ways you can get involved in multicultural activities at Calvin:

  • UNLEARN WEEK – a week of activities that help the Calvin community examine and unlearn stereotypes and assumptions about race, prejudice and privilege
  • POETRY JAM – an evening of spoken word, music and visual art
  • INTERNATIONAL TREASURE – an exploration of cultural food, dress and traditions
  • RANGEELA – this international talent show is an 18-year Calvin tradition
  • STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS – African Student Association, Chinese Student Association, Korean Student Association, Middle East Club, Mu Kappa, National Society of Black Engineers, South East Asia Club, Voice for Missions
  • LEADERSHIP – in the Multicultural Student Development Office (MSDO) and the International Student Association (ISAC), or in any of 70+ student-run organizations
