New MCC Storage Policy for Student Organizations

The MSA is changing its storage policy in the coming 2017-2018 academic year.  In anticipation of this change, the MSA will clear the Multicultural Center's Basement of all unclaimed materials beginning on June 16th, 2017. 

The Situation

The Multicultural Center's  basement is in need of inspection and repair, which first requires the removal of extant material.  This project will allow MSA to address: 

  1. Issues of fire safety.
  2. Structural concerns - The basement area has a leak, which must be found and repaired.
  3. Record keeping - MSA staff doesn't have updated records of who/what is stored in the basemen.
  4. Maintainance - The basement space is cluttered, messy, and must be restored to an orderly space.
  5. Unfinished work - Many groups removed items from basement last year, but not all groups did, and there were so many items left  in the basement that MSA staff felt uncomfortable discarding them. Cleaning and repair was postponed to Summer 2017.

Spring Quarter

Student organizations with materials in MCC storage must remove their items from the MCC basement by 5 PM on Friday, June 16.  The MCC will be open from 8:30 AM to 12 AM everyday, excepting holidays, during which time the basement will be accessible.  

Please note:

  • Any items remaining in the basement will be discarded.
  • If you have items that you don't want to keep, you may leave them in the basement for MSA staff to discard.
  • MSA will inspect, repair, and clean the MCC basement over the summer.

Alternative storage resources for the summer

Fall Quarter

MSA expects to have a new plan for MCC storage in late fall 2017.  Among the issues to be considered are: 

  1. Secured access to the basement
  2. A new shelving/bin system
  3. A sign-up/approval process
