Mission Statement

The mission of CMC is to foster alliances across religions, races, and ethnicities to allow communities and institutions to reach their potential by using the talents of all of their members.

Description

As a partner to the Civic Engagement Center of Prairie State College, CMC uses educational and social opportunities to promote the development of an inclusive and vibrant society. CMC conducts workshops, educational programs and social events in partnership with a variety of corporate, public and nonprofit groups.

In 1997, the organization known as Healing Racism Chicago Southland (HRCS) was founded in Flossmoor, Illinois. In 1996, the first "Healing Racism" workshops were meeting throughout the Chicago area. They help individuals and organizations better understand and work with cultural differences. HRCS was founded to ensure that these opportunities continue to be available.

The HRCS focus was mainly racism as it has historically been experienced by minority populations in the United States. Later, the group chose a new name, the Center for MultiCultural Communities, which reflects a broadening focus. CMC teaches people how to understand and embrace the uniqueness of different groups. This increases a person's cultural competence.

On the main campus of Prairie State College, CMC partners with PSC Student Services. A student chapter of CMC offers young adults an easy way to get involved and make an impact.
