Update:

The first two weeks of the Spring 2022 semester will be remote but be sure to connect with the CCC staff on social media or in our virtual space on Teams. We look forward to seeing you all IRL on Monday, February 7, 2022!


Welcome back Cougars! The Cross-Cultural Center physical space is open and ready for you to come by to check out the space in University Student Union 3400 and build community. We are also continuing to host our virtual space on Microsoft Teams so be sure to connect through chats and read posts about upcoming in-person and virtual events.

  • Revolutionary Friendship: Reflections on Yuri Kochiyama and Malcolm X - Tuesday, May 10, 2022 - 12pm to 1pm - Cross-Cultural Center (USU 3400)
  • Faculty Advising with Pizza! - Tuesday, May 10, 2022 - 1pm to 2pm - Cross-Cultural Center (USU 3400)
  • Empowered & Unapologetic - Cross-Cultural Center

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.
