EC Center for Student Cultural Diversity & Inclusion
The Center for Student Cultural Diversity & Inclusion strives for equity and inclusion for students of color and marginalized backgrounds through empowerment, advocacy, and celebration. The center serves all students with additional intentional efforts of centralizing around students of color, gender-diverse backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community, and all other historically marginalized identities.
Beyond programming diversity and social justice events such as Coming Out Day, Lunar New Year, and MLK Celebration, the center itself holds off/on-campus resources such as a computer lab, free printing every week, check-out programs for calculators, laptops, books, and more for students to utilize.
The Communities of Color Coalition (C3) mission is educating and advocating for social justice and human rights, especially for people of color and other under-represented groups that have been systemically oppressed. We do this through a transformational process that centers and supports those who are closest to the problem in developing and implementing the solutions necessary for systemic change.
