Introduction

The Multicultural Center (MC) at University of the Pacific contains three centers in one building: The Women’s Resource Center, The Pride Resource Center, and the ALANA (African American/Latin@/x/Asian/ Pacific Islander/Native American) Center which serves three types of identity categories. But what of those with intersecting identities? Ex) Queer people of color. The Multicultural Center can better capitalize on the proximity of their identity centers to create “intersectional programming” that highlights two or more “marginal” identities.
