Dates of existence


The Minority Resource and Research Center was first established in 1971 as a way to promote diversity and meet the informational needs for the diverse community at Kansas State University.  The Center has sponsored and co-sponsored a number of programs over the years, such as Movies on the Grass, forums, and lectures that focus on diversity and culture.
In 1978 the "We are the Dream!" mural was started by Kansas State Univesity minority students and completed in 1980.  In 2001, the Dow Chemical Company created an endowment to be used by the library to support the multicultural mission of the Center.  As a result, the resource center was renamed to the Dow Multicultural Resource Center.  In 2012, it was renamed the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies.
