When & Where
OMA&D Ethnic Cultural Center
For 41 years, The Ethnic Cultural Center has been working hard promoting an inclusive and educational environment on campus by providing programs and services which enhance the communication and exchange of multicultural perspectives and values.
We believe that significant learning takes place outside of the classroom for students, and their involvement in student organizations and programs contributes significantly to students' academic studies, the University community, and enhances the recruitment and retention of underrepresented students.
