As the first of the Student Life Centers established at CSUSM in 2003, the Cross-Cultural Center encourages identity exploration by challenging students to think critically about social justice issues and appreciate differences. Our programs promote the development of cultural intelligence, examine various forms of activism, and train students for campus leadership, community engagement, and social change. We create a space for marginalized communities to belong and support efforts for them to achieve their fullest potential for academic success.

All of the programs are connected to our four program themes:

  • Activism and Advocacy
  • Developing multicultural competency
  • Critical engagement across social identity groups
  • Retention of underrepresented and underserved students

We encourage you to visit the space and check out the Love Generator Mural and other social justice related artwork.
