Black History Month Spring 2021
In July 2020 we lost the Honorable John Robert Lewis. To honor his memory and learn how we can continue his mission, we have selected Jon Meacham's new biography:His Truth is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope to read and discuss his life.
Join us for a virtual discussion on Thursday, February 25 at 5 p.m. Registration is required. Visit www.etsu.edu/mcc to register. Don’t wait too long to register — the first 15 people to sign up will receive a free copy of the book! The program is a partnership between the Mary V. Jordan Multicultural Center and the Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement.

From the Director:
The Mary V. Jordan Multicultural Center is a place where our students can discuss, appreciate, and celebrate their identities, similarities, and differences through a variety of facilitated workshops, cultural programming and academic/leadership development opportunities, while also building a sense of community and belonging. It is both a place to gather and an environment for the educational, social justice, and cultural matters that are significant to our students, faculty, staff, and the greater ETSU community.
It is my hope that by facilitating these opportunities for our students it will aid in the students having a meaningful and positive experience on our campus. Our Center is committed to providing quality culturally relevant programs and services that will promote the successful transition, persistence, and graduation of our diverse students.
I look forward to seeing you soon in the Mary V. Jordan Multicultural Center or at one of our many events around campus this upcoming year.
Carshonda H. Martin-Director of the Multicultural Center and Access and Student Success
