Our Mission 

The Cross-Cultural Leadership Center values and respects the richness and understanding that diversity brings. The Center exists to create an environment in which all students, regardless of their ethnicity, culture, or differences, feel respected, connected, and affirmed.

Through a holistic approach of leadership development, cultural awareness, community education, and the creation of a constructive social change, we aspire to create transformational opportunities between and for all people that fosters community engagement.

The Cross-Cultural Leadership Center is partially funded by CSU, Chico's Associated Students.

We acknowledge and are mindful that CSU, Chico stands on lands that were originally occupied by the first people of this area, the Mechoopda, and we recognize their distinctive spiritual relationship with this land and the waters that run through campus. We are humbled that our campus resides upon sacred lands that once sustained the Mechoopda people for centuries.
