The Cesar Chavez Learning Center serves as a central, on-campus home for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s student support programs and groups. During the pandemic, the CCLC relocated to a beautiful new space in the Arts & Sciences Building, room 1313.
This fall's lineup of Office of Diversity and Inclusion student programs, which all find a home in the CCLC, includes:
- ACCESS, formerly known as TRiO
- Men About Progress
- Women Inspiring Scholarship through Empowerment (WISE)
- Diversity Champions
- The Village
- Cultural Awareness Committees
- Summer Bridge and Academic year Pre-College Experience
The CCLC's mission is to support you by shaping a safe and inclusive campus through culturally affirming programs and events. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion also has a second physical space on the Downtown Campus – the Centre for Engaged Inclusion in the Gannon Building – which serves as an event site for a lot of ODI programs, as well as space for students to study, socialize or relax.
ODI also holds regular workshops and events open to students, employees and the entire community, like the Courageous Conversations series.
All students are welcome to visit the CCLC and Centre for Engaged Inclusion, and to apply for any program you are interested in. Primary populations served include low-income, first-generation and adult students; students of differing abilities; and LGBTQIA+ and Black, Indigenous and students of color.
We look forward to seeing you!
