About Us

For 40 years, the ECC has been at the center of the University of Washington’s effort to enhance the communication and exchange of multicultural perspectives and values. The Ethnic Cultural Center works under the framework that a significant amount of student learning takes place outside of the classroom through involvement in student organizations, interactions with faculty and staff, connection to community, exposure to diversity, and opportunities to take on leadership roles.

In an effort to encourage the exchange of multicultural perspectives and values and help prepare students to be successful in their leadership ventures, we are hosting the first annual ECC Leadership Conference which aims to facilitate the development of leadership skills and critical thinking amongst students, staff and faculty at the UW.
