BPCC is proud to announce its Spring 2017 Multicultural Series events/activities line-up. Sponsored by the Multicultural Committee and the Office of Student Life, the Multicultural Series provides multicultural awareness events and creates displays that support inclusion, diversity, and respect. These events and displays celebrate the rich culture, social awareness, and diverse histories of many and varied ethnicities in our global society.


“BPCC embraces a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff,” says Student Life Director Marjoree Harper. “The Office of Student Life and Multicultural Committee, made up of faculty, staff, and students, have planned six months of events to educate others about the rich history and cultures of those living in our community.”


The multicultural display board is located in the Emmett E. Cope Student Services Building (Building F) on the BPCC campus. Each display will have specific information about the culture and history of the particular series of that month.
