Join us as we embrace the essence of diversity, equity, and inclusion through a reflective examination of the histories and cultures that thrive on the land upon which our university stands. We look forward to your participation in this enlightening and inspirational event.


We recognize that California State University, San Bernardino, sits on the territory and ancestral land of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians (Yuhaaviatam). We recognize that every member of the California State University, San Bernardino community has benefitted and continues to benefit from the use and occupation of this land since the institution’s founding in 1965.

Consistent with our values of community and diversity, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples. By offering this Land Acknowledgement, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty and will work to hold California State University, San Bernardino, more accountable to the needs of American Indian and Indigenous peoples.
