In this green place, the InterCultural Center (ICC) is committed to providing the Green Mountain College community with cross-cultural experiences by fostering inclusion and respect for all. The ICC also enhances and enriches the experience of the entire student body by providing opportunities to engage and educate the campus as a whole on issues related to race, gender, and sexual orientation. ICC welcomes all students interested in fostering cross-cultural communication and understanding.
We accomplish our mission by:
- Working together with a variety of campus constituencies and encouraging ongoing dialogue on issues of cultural exchange, race, gender, and sexual orientation between students, staff, and faculty;
- Helping to bring diverse perspectives and experiences to the campus by sponsoring various speakers and events;
- Housing a collection of books and videos related to culture, race, gender, and sexual orientation;
- Providing information about study abroad and travel programs available for all GMC students; and
- Developing and implementing programs and services which celebrate diversity and enhance the GMC curriculum.
History of the GMC InterCultural Center
The InterCultural Center (ICC) was founded by GMC student Shawn Henry in April 2007, with the mission to celebrate and promote multiculturalism. In addition, the ICC was created to improve cross-cultural experiences of all students by fostering inclusion and respect for differences. Hence, ICC aimed to serve as a base platform for cultural differences, religious diversity, various sexual orientations and any other variations among the GMC community.
