The mission of the Cross-Cultural Center has always been about student learning. Specifically, our work is guided by the following Student Affairs Learning Outcome:
A Value and Respect for Differences - students will learn to recognize, respect, and value diverse experiences, ideas, backgrounds, and identities.
Because we aspire for all students to develop this outcome, the Cross-Cultural Center is designed to be used by – and to enhance the development of – all Chapman students. We want students to gain greater insights into their own identity, develop a stronger sense of empathy for others' identities, and to use their learning to help create a more positive and inclusive Chapman community. To facilitate this student learning, we design programs and experiences intended to expose all students to diverse ideas and perspectives, affirm the value of our students from underrepresented identities, and support students who are in need of additional help.
