CCUSC & Office of Diversity

The Latino Cultural Center is one of seven Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (CCUSC), under the Office of Diversity, committed to advancing positive social change grounded in the principles of inclusion, access, and equity. Our collective purpose is to expand understanding of the value of cultural diversity and connect diverse assets to find creative solutions for common challenges. This collective purpose draws upon the Centers’ expertise in scholarship and practice to provide relevant support to our specific populations on campus and opportunities for intercultural engagement among students, faculty, staff, and Chicago communities.
