Middle Eastern Employees and Allies (MEEA)


The Middle Eastern Employees and Allies (MEEA) affinity group promotes the welfare and interests of Boston College’s Middle Eastern employees by advocating for  and supporting the professional development of the BC Middle Eastern community, and by educating the larger BC community about Middle Eastern culture and current events. MEEA is dedicated to celebrating the diversity      of BC’s campus, inspiring unity in the Middle Eastern community, and inviting non Middle Eastern employees  to share in the life of this part of our BC community.


Our goals are to:

  • Provide a support system on campus for faculty   and staff that identify as Middle Eastern or those who  are interested in learning more about the culture and community.
  • Help with Middle Eastern employee retention, upward mobility, and ways to navigate campus.
  • Provide an avenue for members to discuss current events affecting the Middle East, while educating  the campus community on Middle Eastern history, culture, and topics of interest.
  • Represent a traditionally under-represented     Middle Eastern community on campus.
  • Create a more inclusive and supportive   environment at BC.
