Through thoughtful programming on campus, we coordinate events that allow Western students to fully recognize and experience our multicultural student body.
ESS promotes discussions on campus of important race issues and challenges students to engage in meaningful conversations of anti-racism. Our programming works to promote an understanding among students that issues of race, culture, and identity are complex. We respond to incidents involving race and culture that arise on campus and in our broader community through our programming and support.
The committee is involved with the London community through several diversity initiatives. We are actively engaged with advocating for policies that represent a more diverse community within the city, which has direct impacts to students on campus. The committee offers pathways for students to have a voice in London and represents the university within the local community.
Through our campaigns, advocacy, and events, Ethno-cultural Support Services work towards building an equitable and inclusive campus for all racialized, religious, & indigenous students.
