Our Mission

Since November 2021, SDSU-Imperial Valley’s Cross-Cultural Center (CCC) has focused on supporting the success of our diverse student community through programs and events centered on their social justice, inclusion, and validation. We are dedicated to fostering students' wholistic learning and growth through initiatives emphasizing the social justice, inclusion, and validation of the intersectionalities of their social identities such as race, ethnicity, class, ability, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, immigration status and being part of mix-immigration status families.

empoderación en la educación

Empowerment in Education Logo
Empowerment in Education is a series of lectures, symposiums and activities both online and in-person dedicated to amplifying underrepresented success stories in higher education. These events are parallel with our heritage months highlighting Black, Native, Undocumented and LGBTQ+ scholars, educators and activists in education. The grant will bring a series of educators, activists and scholars from along the Baja California-California borderlands and beyond, with the purpose of informing peer students, faculty, staff and advising administrators on how to better serve and advocate for the underserved by fostering their academic and personal development. For more info on the series of lectures.
