The Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center (JGMC) continues the tradition of past UNL Culture Centers, providing a home away from home for underrepresented students while welcoming all UNL students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests.
The Multicultural Center is a stated priority of the Chancellor and an important step in securing and expanding the progress the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has made in our diversity efforts as a campus.
Constructed in 2010, JGMC is 30,000 square feet of absolute beauty and was built as the largest multicultural center attached to a student union. We are proud to serve as a shining example of what can be done to serve students, faculty, and staff. The JGMC offers culturally relevant resources and activities supportive of all - there is something here for all no matter your age, identity(ies), or cultural background. We offer clubs, groups, and events geared to help you be a part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus culture. We provide multiple study and lounge spaces as well as student organization offices, meeting and conference rooms, a music room, a kitchen, and a computer lab.
Within the JGMC, we provide services through the Office of Academic Success and Intercultural Services (OASIS), while also supporting students who receive Diversity Enhancement Scholarships. Our office is proud to serve as an “oasis” for students as they seek to find their way on our campus. Through one-on-one connections, our programs provide culturally sensitive retention services and activities that focus on diversity, inclusive excellence, and supporting students throughout their academic careers. Our office also provides academic support designed to assist and supplement the work that UNL faculty is doing in academic spaces.
We encourage you to explore this site and to visit us at the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center.
