Students are the lifeblood of East Stroudsburg University and we recognize the inherent value in having a diverse and accepting student body. To that end, we encourage students to take advantage of the services provided by the following offices and organizations here at ESU:
- Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA): serves as an advocate and resource for students from diverse cultural backgrounds and coordinates the activities for student organizations representing the interests of these underrepresented groups. In addition, the office supports individuals and groups who seek to develop and implement educational or social programs that promote cultural awareness. The Office is located at 96 Normal Street.
- Gender and Sexuality Center (GSC): housed in the lower level of the University Center, room G-7, complete with relaxing social and study space, staff offices, and a resource library, the Center's mission is to encourage ESU community members to discuss and reflect upon the myriad ways that these two interrelated identities influence our lives. Grounded in an intersectional perspective, the GSC's programs and services range from the organization of campus-wide events such as LGBT History Month, Women's History Month, and National Coming Out Week and support of different student organizations and groups to providing a warm and welcoming space for all individuals to engage.
- International Programs: supports the university mission by fostering a learning community with an international focus. We provide assistance to international students studying at ESU and ESU students who wish to study abroad. Our goal is to help students to lead and succeed in a global society and to promote diversity in the campus community.
- OASIS: OASIS promotes equal access to educational opportunities for students with documented disabilities and works to engage the ESU community to elevate equity and empower students. OASIS advocates for students with disabilities, and coordinates academic and housing accommodations; and connects students with appropriate resources both on and off campus.
- Warrior Food Pantry: The Warrior Food Pantry is a program to support students that are in need of a food source during the academic year. This initiative was developed out of the need to ensure that students are able to obtain necessary food for their well-being. The pantry is a collaborative initiative with St. Matthew's Church and ESU. The entire operation is volunteer and donation-driven. Spear headed by the Office of Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence and supported by SAA, Inc, APSCUF, Service Learning Initiative Committee and ESU Campus Catholic Ministries, the Warrior Food Pantry is one of many ways that ESU is responding to identified needs of students.
- Hardship Grant Request
- Campus Ministry and Spirituality: ESU has a vibrant campus ministry and spirituality program. Most programs are student organized with staff or faculty as advisors. Organizations range from cultural, spiritual, to ministry focused.
