MOSAIC Center for Student Inclusion opens at WSU Tri-Cities

MOSAIC CENTER

RICHLAND, Wash. - WSU Tri-Cities is now home to a space that welcomes students of any gender, religion, race or background.

The grand opening for its new MOSAIC Center for Student Inclusion was held on Thursday. The goal of the center is to provide a place where students can learn more about various cultures, share their own stories and have open dialogue. 

"Our hope is that these conversations will happen naturally," said AS vice president Savanna Navarro Kresse. "It's going to be an informal gathering space, but we'll also be really intentional about it as well." 

Students will have access to workshops on social issues, book clubs, documentary showings on diversity-related topics advocacy opportunities and more.

The concept has been years in the making. First introduced by Israa Alshaikhli, former president of the Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities, the project came to fruition under Kresse's leadership.

"It's about all of us from different backgrounds and different experiences coming together," she said. "To me that's the true Coug experience." 

The center is located in Floyd 140 on campus and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 pm. daily.
