Pauley - Multicultural Hall-
Multicultural Hall is a space in which students may openly discuss their differences and pluralistic identities with neighbors of different identities and backgrounds so that we may learn about our differences and celebrate them. By no means is Multicultural Hall intended to be an exclusive community, but rather an institution open to all who wish to engage in dialogue, serving as a living and evolving embodiment of the four cornerstones of the Occidental College mission statement: excellence, equity, community, and service.
