Parent Organization: Contracted Independent Organizations
The purpose of the Minority Rights Coalition at the University of Virginia is to provide services and activities to its members and the community as a whole to create a greater understanding between people of all minority status, whether because of ethnic status, gender, or sexual orientation. The MRC oversees 7 other organizations at UVA, each dealing with a specific minority community: the Asian Student Union (ASU), the Black Student Alliance (BSA), Feminism is for Everyone (FIFE), the Latino Student Alliance (LSA), the Middle Eastern Leadership Council (MELC), the Native American Student Union (NASU), the Queer Student Union (QSU), and United for Undergraduate Socioeconomic Diversity (UFUSED). Working with these organizations, the MRC creates various programs and initiatives to further develop each minority community and foster greater cooperation between the minority community and non-minority community at the University.
