Multicultural Education Center

Multicultural contributions are a valuable part of society.

A unique place on campus, the Multicultural Education Center (MEC), has evolved into a multipurpose resource center that seeks to bring people together to promote and celebrate diversity on campus, in the greater Oshkosh area and extended communities. MEC sponsors enrichment programs and activities designed to increase the level of understanding and appreciation for cultural diversity throughout the community.

MEC also serves as a resource and information center for students, staff, faculty and community members interested in improving cross-cultural human relations and understanding cultural differences. MEC continues to serve as the "embassy" for all multicultural and international students on campus. To many multicultural and international students, MEC provides a "home away from home" atmosphere.
