The Cross Cultural and Gender Center exists to contribute significantly to the continued development of a safe and welcoming environment for the Fresno State community. We foster meaningful dialogue and activism that works to eliminate racism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of oppression.

  • create an environment that fosters a sense of community
  • promotes integration to the University
  • encourages use of campus resources
  • guides students to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals
