The Cross-Cultural Center is proud of its growing tradition of collaboration with academic departments and student organizations as well as individual students to provide innovative programming throughout the academic year. Individual students presenting at a recognized academic research conference, symposium or leadership conference are encouraged to submit a grant request. Student organizations, and campus departments are also encouraged to submit proposals to support their planning workshops, activities or programs.
The critical part of any funding request we review must support the mission of the Cross-Cultural Center. We give priority to events, activities or programs that advance the institutional goal for campus diversity. All activities must be open to all members of our campus community.
