Please note that all reservation requests are subject to unexpected changes due to emergent COVID guidelines and center staff discretion.

Our Cultural Resource Center (CRC) facilities provide community, celebration, and traditions that encourage students to become dynamic role models with innovative approaches to create social change. These spaces also provide a venue for functions that educate students and members of the community about the CRC facilities designated culture, and provide leadership development through these events and activities. 

Due to the importance of the CRC spaces as sites for transformational learning and community building, we require that all reservations align with our mission. When considering hosting an event in one of our centers, please read all of our policies closely to make sure we're the right space for your event. We will evaluate reservation requests alignment using the following criteria:

  • Contribute to an inclusive campus, shared sense of community, and dialog within and across identity groups
  • Promote skill-building and/or address needs of members of underserved communities
  • Engage event in transformative learning about identity, experiences of marginalized groups, and/or social justice
  • Engage self-analysis of systems of differences, power, and oppression
  • Move participants from dialog and knowledge-building toward addressing inequities and promoting positive social change
