On April 7th, 2014, the Oregon State community celebrated the grand opening of the new Centro Cultural César Chávez facility, the second of four new cultural resource center buildings being constructed on campus.

The center provides space for students to socialize, celebrate, and study, as well as learn more about their own culture and that of others.

This 3,565-square-foot building was designed by Seattle-based architects Jones & Jones, who also designed the new Native American Longhouse Eena Haws (NAL), the new Lonnie B. Harris Black Cultural Center (BCC), and the new Asian & Pacific Cultural Center (APCC).
