The Multi-Ethnic Cultural and Co-Curricular Programming Advisory Committee (MECCPAC) is a diversity initiative offered through the Dean of Students Office. The committee reviews applications to provide matching co-sponsorship funds for cultural, educational, and multi-ethnic programs that help build awareness and appreciation within the Illinois State community for African American, Latin American, Native American, and Asian American cultures; women; people with disabilities; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons (LGBT).
Registered student organizations, academic departments, the International House, and other groups hosting events that promote diversity education and build cultural awareness and appreciation can apply for funding from MECCPAC for their events. MECCPAC will share financial responsibility to combine resources to promote multicultural programming for approved applications. Please be aware that funding is very limited at this point in the academic year.
2. Submit completed applications and budgets to the MECCPAC Chair for initial review. Note: applications and budgets are only accepted online.
3. Once reviewed, only approved applications are presented to the committee.
Thank you for your commitment to diversity.
