Middle East Club

mideastclubThe Calvin College Middle East Club [CCMEC] hopes to provide a place for the Calvin community to gain a fuller understanding and respect for the peoples of the Middle East and their respective diasporas in the United States. We strive to raise awareness of historical and contemporary issues facing the region through education, volunteerism, and activism. Our underlying mission: to learn through cultural and religious dialogue, to promote understanding, and to support efforts of peace and reconciliation both in the United States and abroad.
