About the Cross Cultural Center
The Cross Cultural Center helps to promote cultural awareness across the CSUSB campus. We do this by hosting various events throughout the school year. The center also provides a relaxing atmosphere for students to study, use computers, or just hang out in between classes.
The Cross Cultural Center focuses on issues of race and ethnicity in its mission to provide space for students from all racial and ethnic groups. The CCC provides programs and services to aid in students' personal, educational, cultural, social, political, and professional growth and to foster a sense of community. Its programs and services combine to create a place for students to explore issues of identity, ethnic and cultural diversity and work towards ending intolerance by the development of understanding.
The CCC has four integrated identity centers on campus (LatinX, Pan African, First Peoples’, Asian Pacific Islander), a result of student led initiatives. The process encompassed many hours of research, meetings, forums, and round tables to discuss how these centers would promote retention and graduation rates for the underrepresented minorities (URMs). The administration and staff welcomed the invitation to be a part of this process and work with a dynamic group of students. These efforts highlight CSUSB’s first strategic goal: Student Success. The identity centers promote and celebrate all cultures with respect and integrity.
