Multicultural Admissions Officers

The Multicultural Committee on Admissions (MCA) is a consortial group whose membership is drawn from Multicultural Recruitment Coordinators (or their equivalents) based at GLCA colleges. Membership is contingent on service in a capacity related to the group's remit which is described below. For their part, committee members elect the Convener and Co-Convener on a biennial basis, and protocol requires the existing Co-Convener to assume the role of Convener at the end of her or his term, while a new Co-Convener is elected thereafter.

The MCA's mission is threefold, namely to provide professional development and networking opportunities for its members in order to increase retention in a high turnover field, develop strategies to increase the population of domestic students of color on GLCA campuses and undertake community outreach via Planning for College (PFC), a pre-college planning program for middle school students.

The MCA meets once a year (typically in May ) on the campuses of GLCA colleges and holds a conference call in December.
