New Director Joins Intercultural Center
September 19, 2016
Brandeis University’s Intercultural Center (ICC) has just welcomed Madeleine E. Lopez as its new director. Lopez plans to build on the center’s mission to serve as a place of respect, education and celebration that fosters growth and awareness about the many cultures at Brandeis.
Lopez’s arrival comes just ahead of a major milestone for the ICC: in April 2017 it will mark its 25th anniversary as a campus space where students can connect and learn about social responsibility through programs that focus on issues of culture, race and ethnicity. The Intercultural Center operates inside Swig Hall on the East Quad.
Lopez is closely connected to Brandeis, having served as a lecturer here in Latino and Latina history. Previously she was the founding director of the Cultural Education Center at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.
