Middle Eastern Students' Association (MESA)
The Middle East Students' Association, or MESA, is an organization that aims to unite medical students, along with other health professions students with whom we share the CWRU campus, of Middle Eastern origin or ethnicity. Members may be international students or American students, they may be of a Middle Eastern ethnicity, or they may be allies and CWRU community members who wish to learn more about us. All ethnicities, religions, and creeds are welcome to join us as we aim to provide a safe and united space for Middle Eastern students to congregate.
All ethnicities, religions, and creeds are welcome to join us as we aim to provide a safe and united space for Middle Eastern students and allies to congregate. We welcome members of the CWRU community who may not share our background but would like to learn more about our community. We aim to help our own community members and our allies gain cultural humility when interacting with people and patients of Middle Eastern descent. We aim to become more connected with, and to serve, the Middle East community here in Cleveland.
