Resources and Policies

Students on campusMCCC offers a number of resources on campus as well as policies and procedures that support the transition and success of multicultural students at the college. For additional services and support not mentioned here, visit the Services and Support section of the MCCC website.

Care Closet

MCCC students are organizing a location in the Safe Space: A Multicultural Student Center in the Warrick Student Center (Building S) for students, faculty, staff and community members to access necessities such as baby items, clothing, personal hygiene products, cleaning products and other household goods that are donated from a variety of sources. 

Chosen Name Policy

MCCC has a Chosen Name Policy (Policy 6.49) to allow a chosen name to be displayed in various college systems and communications. This allows members of the college community, including students and staff to go by a chosen first name that differs from their legal name. This policy is limited to first name and not surname, middle name or family name.

MCCC recognizes that many individuals prefer to go by first names that are different from their legal names. As long as the use of this chosen name does not impact the college’s compliance with state and federal laws, MCCC will make every effort to display an individual's chosen name in college systems and communications.

The college’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance produced a video tutorial on how to use the Chosen Name Policy at MCCC.
