The Multicultural Recruitment Committee (MRC) is a subunit of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for students who are interested in being part of the recruitment effort for students of color at Columbia Admissions. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions recruits new members of the MRC each fall. Members undergo extensive sensitivity training in the spring before becoming full MRC members.

In addition to the MRC, the Undergraduate Recruitment Committee (URC) and the Global Recruitment Committee (GRC) also support the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in recruiting students.
