Spring 2021 student leaders within Associated Students of Diablo Valley College repurposed
the multicultural center as a collaborative effort with the college to create the
Dreamer, Health, LGBTQ+ and SparkPoint Center. The expected opening is Spring 2023.
Previously, student leadership within the Associated Students of Diablo Valley College
(ASDVC) and Diversity Affairs Committee (DAC), identified a need in 2014 for more
inclusive campus space for students. With a committed, steady effort in partnership
with the College, the Multicultural Center was developed and implemented.
