The Multicultural Empowerment Club (MEC) at Athens State University is a student-driven organization designed to address issues of diversity with the intention of fostering an environment of understanding, tolerance, and competence. Our mission is to provide a social outlet for students to meet with other students of different cultural backgrounds. To provide opportunities for English as A Second Language (ESL) students to informally work on their English skills. To work with other organizations on diversity projects. To develop and implement projects designed to expose the whole campus to multiculturalism and diversity. Involvement in the Multicultural Empowerment Club will enrich students’ learning and provide opportunities for ASU students to explore Inclusion and diversity in an interpersonal setting.
