Hi CCC Family and Community!
Looking at this upcoming year, I am humbled and honored to serve as the Interim Director of the Cross Cultural Centers during a time of transition.
I am so proud of all the incredible programs, events, and initiatives that our team has accomplished and am grateful for all of the campus partners who have been so integral to our work in making Cal Poly a more inclusive campus. Our collective of campus cultural centers (Gender Equity Center, Men & Masculinities, MultiCultural Center, and Pride Center) help cultivate a culturally rich environment and instills understandings of diversity and inclusive excellence that cannot be separated from learning, teaching, collaboration, trust, and community.
This upcoming year we will be working on new strategies to streamline our communication and operations that will allow our Cross Cultural Centers to continue to champion access, equity, and inclusion at Cal Poly. We invite each of you to join our team on this journey and we look forward to connecting with you at our events.
