Welcome to Winter 2021

We hope you had a Happy New Year!

As most of you know, the Men of Color counselors are passionate about supporting you in meeting your educational goal, transfer requirements, and getting started. Please reach out to us for support.  

It is always good to check in with a counselor at least two times during each quarter.  

Due to COVID-19, our activities are put on hold. However, the Men of Color counselors will be emailing you all with virtual activities once we have them set up. We ask all active MC2 students to participate in at least two activities for the quarter. More information will be provided once we solidify the schedule.

We are currently planning the Rock the School Bells Conference. More information will be provided so look out for this upcoming event.  

For Additional Support:

Again, welcome to Winter 2021. We look forward to supporting you. 

Warm regards, 

Our Mission 

The Men of Color Community (MC2) provides support and empowerment to men of color through active community engagement and facilitated mentoring relationships with student mentors, faculty and staff of color. The objective is to help students achieve success in all areas of their life as members of the De Anza College community. 

About Us

MC2 was created to address declining transfer and completion rates for men of color. The program provides the space and resources for men of color to succeed in college and beyond.

Through cultural empowerment and community building, MC2 bridges the gap between the institution and the student.

MC2 is inclusive of all ethnic groups in order to promote equality throughout society and truly equal educational opportunities for all.

All students are welcome to join MC2 !
