A little bit about the Ethnocultural Collective

UWA is a multicultural community with international and domestic students with cultural backgrounds from all over the world.

The Ethnocultural Collective acts as a representative voice for culturally and linguistically diverse students to the Guild Council. They run events and initiatives to ensure that these students are included at university, and to celebrate cultural diversity.
