Born out of student activism and political struggle, the UC Davis Cross Cultural Center provides a culturally relevant community space where student voices can be expressed and respected. The CCC cultivates critical consciousness and cultural competency by providing learning opportunities at the crossroads of the many aspects of our identities and experiences. By embracing our cultural and intellectual heritage, the CCC supports student leadership in advancing our collective vision for community empowerment and social justice.
As a community center for students, the following six values guide our work:
- Cultural Competency
- Community Building
- Academic Excellence, Research, and Education
- Identity Exploration
- Leadership Development
