The Middle Eastern Resource Center (MERC) promotes the cultural awareness and academic success of students of Middle Eastern, North African and South Asian heritage. It fosters dialogue, cross-cultural learning, and interaction amongst the diverse ethnic groups within the Middle Eastern communities and the campus-at-large. Through its programs, the MERC works to assist students to embrace their cultural identity, integrate into student life, promote an appreciation and celebration of diversity, and reinforce an affirmation of our institutional and educational commitment to leadership, achievement, collaboration, excellence, and community.
