History of the ICC
The ICC exists because of and for our students. The ICC opened its doors on October 21, 2014, in response to the requests from various cultural student organizations that expressed a need for a space focused on two things: (1) supporting the work of their organizations and (2) educational programming related to issues of cultural competency and centering marginalized identities, especially people of color. There was a focus on creating spaces for critical dialogues and fostering an increasingly inclusive environment at UM-Flint. In the spirit of inclusion, everyone is welcome at the ICC and at all ICC events and programs.
