QCC's Virtual Multicultural Center welcomes you!

QCC Land Acknowledgement Statement

We want to acknowledge that we gather as Quinsigamond Community College on the traditional land of the Nipmuc, past and present. While a land acknowledgment statement is an important initial step and not enough, it is a necessary decolonial practice that promotes indigenous visibility and social justice, reminding us that we are on settled indigenous land. We condemn the unjust deeds done in the past and honor with gratitude the land itself and the indigenous people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. We commit to continuing to work for peace and reconciliation and to be better neighbors and caretakers of the land we inhabit.  

Our pages reflect, explore, and celebrate a broad spectrum of diversities, including age, race, gender, ability, religious convictions, socio-economic status, ethnic heritage, and sexual orientation.

Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Programming Funding Request:

Funds from the Diversity/Multicultural Programming Budget will be made available to faculty, staff and students of Quinsigamond Community College for the purpose of supporting educational events related to diversity, inclusion, multiculturalism, and identity. Proposals for one-time and serial funding will be considered; no award implies a future award or ongoing funding.

Applications may be submitted on behalf of any College entity (e.g., individuals, student organizations, departments or committees including ad-hoc committees).

Past activities have included: guest lecturers, theatrical/dance/musical presentations, forums/seminars/workshops, literary/fine art presentations, films/videos, ethnic/cultural fairs, and receptions.  The funds could also be used as part of shared expenses with another college or organization co-sponsoring an event. Funding is not limited to these activities.  Funding can include the cost of honorariums, meals, and/or promotional materials.
