The CWU Museum of Culture and Environment works with diverse communities to create opportunities for lifelong learning that foster self-discovery, global citizenship, and environmental stewardship.
We (the Museum) recognize that diversity, among people and our natural environment, is an essential resource. As people increasingly impact the natural world, both locally and worldwide, communities need to value and explore a diversity of voices and experiences to effectively address the critical issues that we face. The Museum of Culture and Environment strives through its partnerships with students, colleagues, and the wider community to create a space where this diversity of voices can be heard. The museum’s goal is to create a dynamic and inclusive place where ideas, perspectives, and the newest research are shared. By upholding the highest ethical and professional standards in the care of collections, and in all operations and programs, the museum provokes public interest in contemporary issues and encourages a deeper, richer level of engagement with the changing world. The Museum of Culture and Environment is a forum where mutual understanding, respect, and support for one another will be the outcomes of exploring our shared diversity.
