Multicultural Education Center


The Multicultural Education Center (MEC) is a unique place on campus that 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 in 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, faculty, and community members interested in improving cross-cultural human relations and understanding cultural differences. The MEC continues to serve as the “embassy” for all multicultural and international students on campus. For many multicultural/multiracial and international students, MEC provides a “home away from home” atmosphere.

Building Hours:   Monday to Thursday – 9:00 am to 8:00 pm; Friday – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm; Closed Saturday & Sunday.
