Ethnic Student Center students gathered with an ESC banner

Ethnic Student Center

The Ethnic Student Center (ESC) is an organization within Multicultural Student Services of Western Washington University and was established in 1991. Our goal is to help students Affirm their identity, Build a sense of community, and Cultivate leadership (Our "ABCs"). The ESC is home to diverse clubs open to students of all backgrounds. Many students within the ESC have moved on to become leaders on campus and in their communities.

The Ethnic Student Center is located on the 7th floor of the Viking Union in the Multicultural Center and provides social and academic support, professional and student staff, and amenities such as lounge space, a full kitchen, as well as dance and conference rooms. Students often come before, between, and after classes to have lunch, study, have meetings, or just relax and hang out. Come and join us!
