Participating in their club events & activities can benefit students greatly, alongside promoting the understanding of unique cultures and ethnic heritage. Their aim is to facilitate the acquisition of the attitudes, skills, and knowledge to function in various cultures.

Statement from club’s secretary Amanda Alwin 

Amanda Alwin had been a member of the club for the previous two academic years, which encouraged her to run for the club’s secretary position this year. She enjoys advocating for diversity and interacting with people from various cultures. She is excited to host the events this year with the new executive team and is hopeful that the students will enjoy them.
