Campus Community Centers and Programs

The Black Resource Center, The Raza Resource Centro, The Women’s Center, The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, The Cross-Cultural Center, Asian Pacific Islander Middle Eastern Desi American Program, and Paths Program are collectively known as the Campus Community Centers and Programs.

We effect institutional change by challenging traditional notions of diversity and historical power structures. As places of engagement and belonging, we facilitate interactive learning, promote self-awareness, foster leadership, and encourage dialogue through our work with undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the San Diego Community, we contribute towards the creation of a socially just campus climate.

It is valuing differences and recognizing commonalities that energize and drive the overall work of the Campus Community Centers and Programs. By understanding and appreciating our diverse histories and experiences, we have found the common connections that bring us together to create strong communities.
