(All funding either provides student services, learning opportunities, or pays student salaries) -The ESC provides a voice and sense of inclusiveness for historically underrepresented groups -The ESC funds events and activities that are open to all students across the University -The ESC promotes a culture of diversity and tolerance across our campus
The Strategic Plan Section 2 of the Strategic Plan states: “Changing demographic trends in the United States and the increasing globalization of economic, political, and social systems, demand that students be prepared for working in a world in which diversity is the norm.” The Mission and Activities of the Equity Services Council are vital to ensuring the success of CWU’s strategic plan.

FY 2014-2017 Request Total amount requested FY 14-17: $53,153 per year
Difference in Funding Request The ESC is requesting $2250 more than it did for FY 2010- 2013. The reasons for this are as follows: -$3900 increase for student pay and benefits -$1300 increase for food for the purpose of funding two new graduation banquets; -$350 increase for equipment -$200 increase for graphics and printing We recognize that S&A funds are not unlimited and have therefore made cuts to certain areas of our budget such as; -$2000 cut from programs -$900 cut from travel -$600 cut from membership and registration
