Cultural Education

United & Mutually Equal (U&ME)

Embrace Our Diversity

United & Mutually Equal is a multicultural student organization that is open to all students of Western New England University who have a desire to learn about people from different cultural backgrounds and ethnicities. The primary purpose of U&ME is to celebrate our differences and embrace our diversity, throughout the campus, as well as promote ideals of mutual equality, respect, and social justice. One way this is accomplished is through a variety of events and activities the club sponsors, such as campus wide cultural dinners, inspirational speakers, and festivals, just to name a few. The club encourages its members to seek opportunities to celebrate and provide opportunities to discuss our differences and celebrate our similarities.

The organization is also highly recognized for sponsoring the Annual Christmas Party for preschool age children, for serving dinner at various women's shelters, Ebony Food Festival & Gospel Concert, and for planning the first World Fest, which has now become part of our annual traditions. While this organization does focus on the greater Springfield community, it acts as a support system for students of color as well as a team to meet the needs of students on campus.
