ESC Mission

The ESC is a community that centers the voices and experiences of historically underrepresented BIPOC students and allies by providing a social atmosphere and inclusive environment. We engage in identity exploration, cultural awareness, and community building by actively learning about and striving to be anti-colonial and anti-racist in our endeavors.

We are a student-centered program within Multicultural Student Services of WWU. We provide several resources and a safe environment where students can work on event programming, do homework, or just hang out. The ESC includes many cultural clubs that assist students in transitioning to Western, developing cultural identity, providing a sense of community, and being active in social justice. The ESC also offers study space, computer access, and resource information. Open to all students.
