ESSAʻs mission, similar to that of the Ethnic Studies Department, is to encourage university students to implement what they learn in their classrooms into active engagement with the larger community. We strive to provide social spaces that open up dialogue and engagement with concepts related to various forms of identity, identity construction, and identity interaction that are explored in our ES courses.
