The Multicultural Student Leadership Association (MSLA) is a student led organization dedicated to celebrate and to share our different cultural perspectives while enjoying our campus diversity. MSLA looks forward to continuously foster an environment of understanding, acceptance, and multicultural competence at Dakota County Technical College (DCTC).
Everyone is invited to attend our meetings every Wednesday from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Central Commons area of our campus, during the fall and spring semesters. Bring your lunch and join us to have constructive and action-oriented conversations, where students of all backgrounds are welcomed to share and to celebrate their cultural heritage.
