U-M's new multicultural center celebrates directed by Julio Cardona

 

ANN ARBOR: It’s a new chapter for the Trotter Multicultural Center, which gains a brand-new building and address in the heart of the University of Michigan campus.

 

The $10-million facility—which serves students of all cultural identities—is now located on State Street and easily accessible to the academic community. Nearly a year-and-a-half after it broke ground, the 20,000-square-foot building will open to the community April 11.

 

The center is a space that was created with input from students and showcases the university's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It is designed to be a gathering space where students, faculty, staff and alumni have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and conversation—formal and informal—around topics such as cultural identity, race, gender, multiculturalism and more.

 

The Trotter Multicultural Center, as it is known today, began as Trotter House in 1971 when African-American students united under the Black Action Movement to help students who experienced obstacles within their educational process.
 

Julio Cardona, director of the Trotter Multicultural Center, looks forward to expanding the center's mission in promoting an inclusive campus climate. With 20 years of experience in launching innovative initiatives in higher education and recognized efforts to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive organizational climate via data-driven solutions, Cardona is ready for this new chapter.
