A Note on Content

Because of the overlap between the Unity movement and the creation of the MCC, there may be some overlap of information between this page of our research guide and the Unity page.

This is not a comprehensive list of all documents and articles relating to the Multicultural Center (MCC). For information on how to find more documents via our physical archives, please consult our Guide to Archives & Special Collections: Searching. For information on how to search through Digital Collections, please refer to our Guide to Digital Collections or Tips for Searching the Santa Clara student newspaper collection. We are updating this guide on a regular basis to add more information, but recognize that there may be too many articles for one person to find them all. If there is an important article or document you feel should be included, but isn't, please feel free to let us know at specialcollections@scu.edu.
