To ensure the Cultural Center serves as a space of mutual respect, individuals in this space are expected to:

  • create a welcoming space for everybody
  • demonstrate respect for one another and also for the physical space
  • invite different perspectives, ideas, and opinions in constructive ways
  • provide a compassionate space for themselves and others
  • suspend assumptions about each other’s identities
  • educate themselves and match the investments of others
  • foster an accountable space, where we strive not to perpetuate oppression against ourselves and each other
  • acknowledge and welcome different levels of awareness

Time for Community and Learning

"The Cultural Center and its associated dialogues really provided me a space through which I could understand race/class dynamics in a more informed manner."
