Welcome to The EKU Cultural Center

The EKU Cultural Center seeks to ensure the retention and success of our underrepresented students by advocating for their needs and providing them with individualized social and academic guidance. The Center strives to bring issues of cultural diversity to the forefront of campus conversation through educational programs and services.  We serve all students as they question personal and collective notions of race, gender, economic status, language, nationality, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, exceptionality and culture.  Our Center encourages the utilization of campus resources, participation in campus life, understanding and respecting cultural differences, and encouraging tolerance and inclusiveness.


The Center is actively engaged in collaborative efforts with other departments and academic areas on campus and provides co-curriculum learning experiences.   The office promotes life-long learning and global citizenship by providing programs, workshops, trainings, study groups, panel discussions and events on cultural awareness, sensitivity and competence. 

Each year, the Cultural Center offers the Dr. William and Mrs. Marion Berge Scholarship
