As the first of the student life centers established at CSUSM in 2003, the Cross-Cultural
Center is a steady and constant beacon for social justice on campus. The center has
consistently supported students, faculty and staff through identity development and
process, building critical consciousness, and appreciating 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.
The theme of our recent Social Justice Symposium was that “activism can be the journey rather than the arrival,” a quote by Grace Lee Boggs. During this pandemic, when connection is so important and our society feels so divided, your support will enhance our goal of engaging students in the process and journey of social justice action and change. All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference.
