Who We Are

The Middle Eastern Student Center (MESC) is the first in the UC System and the nation! It’s a place to unite in friendship, celebrate Middle Eastern culture with our campus community and find common ground. Ultimately, it’s a place to serve the needs of Middle Eastern students and create an even more inclusive and respectful atmosphere at UCR. We look forward to welcoming you to #MESCUCR!
