UA Is Culture
We would love to have your talents and good energy join us at the Crossroads Community Center! Crossroads offers programs such as Sustained Dialogue and Better Together so you can share your honest thoughts on challenging issues in a supportive, affirming space. We are excited to be launching additional programs in the fall through our Interfaith Initiative and International Cultural Events. These are all wonderful opportunities for sharing culture and engaging in positive exchange across difference on campus. Stop by Crossroads soon and tell us how you want to be involved!
United by the title UA is Culture, Crossroads Community Center offers many programs throughout the year that invite individuals to share their cultural traditions and learn about one another. Most prominent among these programs have been African American Heritage Month, Scottish Tartan Week, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Hispanic Latino Heritage Month, International Education Week, and Native American Heritage Month. Through these programs, individuals can share the paths they have traveled to come here, sharing the many cultures and faiths that make us the great international university that we are and enhancing the richness of the student experience. We invite students, faculty, and staff of all cultures and faiths to join in planning and presenting UA is Culture.
