Evolving Our Community
University of California, Berkeley
Welcome to the Multicultural Education Program!
This is your portal to multicultural education resources at UCB and beyond. Here you may access tools to assist you with classroom discussions and group facilitation. You may also find diversity workshops on a variety of topics. We hope that you will utilize this site often and join us in collaborating as we evolve our understanding of each other and our communities.
The Multicultural Education Program (MEP) is one of six initiatives funded by the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund to work towards institutional change and to create a positive campus climate for diversity. The MEP is a five-year initiative to establish a sustainable infrastructure for activities like educational consultation and diversity workshops for the campus that address both specific topics, and to cater to group needs across the campus.
MEP is a Staff Diversity Initiatives program.
