The United Minorities Council (UMC) facilitates interculturalism and promotes social justice at the University of Pennsylvania. We are an undergraduate student coalition of Carribbean/African-American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latino, and Native American student organizations.
“Culture is not merely a static received tradition but a living process of invention and reinvention”.
– WAYNE C GLASKER (BA, PH.D., UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA)
The UMC is a historically rich student organization, whose vision of lasting cultural pluralism was formed through the unified efforts of African-American, Puerto Rican, Mexican American, other Latino, Japanese American, Chinese American and Korean American student organizations.
