Elmhurst draws students of many ages and from nearly every racial and ethnic background. We see our differences as a source of strength—and we sponsor a number of student organizations especially designed to support cultural identity. For example:
Black Student Union
Students work together throughout the school year to promote awareness of minority issues and celebration of ethnic and cultural heritage.
