ECC Staff photo

About

Etihad means unity—as a cultural resource center, it means a forum to unite on-campus and online students from various backgrounds in order to bond over things that bring us together. The Etihad Cultural Center (ECC) is home to a large population coming from central, southern and western Asia as well as northern Africa. This region contains lots of similarities and differences in culture, religion and politics. The ECC’s mission statement embodies the combined vision of hundreds of students who want to build a community based on their mutual commitment to unity and inclusion. Moreover, the ECC serves as a student resource not only culturally but also academically by mentoring international and domestic students. The ECC is an important addition to OSU’s historical growth as an inclusive community—especially one that values internationalization.

We do not affiliate with any particular religion, rather we represent all belief systems embraced by these cultures.

We welcome everyone to join us – even from a distance. If you would like to be connected to our resources from afar, please let us know, and we will work to include you in our efforts.

About

The Native American Longhouse (NAL) Eena Haws represents the Indigenous people of the Americas and Pacific Islands. We strive to deconstruct colonial borders’ impact on Indigenous identities while also honoring the sovereignty of tribes. While protecting and preserving the rights of Indigenous people, we provide a sense of home/community for Indigenous students that helps preserve their Indigenous identities while in college. The NAL provides a source of support honoring the cultures of the first people of these lands. We also provide educational opportunities to educate all about the region’s’ tribes.

The NAL prides itself in being a brave space that Indigenous students can be in community and express their culture. Events are held fall, winter, and spring terms that highlight Indigenous history, culture, and current issues that also help give the broader campus community more understanding about Indigenous people. We always recognize and give thanks to the Kalapuya people whose land OSU resides.

If you would like to learn more about the space, we invite you to stop by anytime. You can also learn more about the NAL history in the Multicultural Archives in the Valley Library. We also invite you to follow us on social media and/or sign up for our listserv to be kept up to date with us.
