CSUS Commitment to Diversity Marks Milestone


The Multi-Cultural Center at California State University, Sacramento commemorates its 10th anniversary this month.

The center offers a supportive environment for the University community and celebrates diversity. It provides a link between the University and the region where ideas are exchanged and connections are nurtured.

With the new year comes a fresh focus that will result in an ever stronger commitment to diversity.

"The past 10 years have been a defining decade for the center," says center director Leonard Valdez. "We have developed the center's vision. Now we are at a point where we need to go to the next level."

A proposal for action is now being drafted that will be taken to the center's campus and community advisory boards this spring.

As many as 20 events and exhibits are sponsored and co-sponsored by the center each semester. Events have included bringing influential speakers to campus, such as the upcoming visit by Myrlie Evers-Williams at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 10 in the University Union Ballroom. Evers-Williams is an activist and the widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers.

One year the center hosted the Living Treasures of Japan exhibit and another time hosted a showing of a Cesar Chavez documentary and exhibit.
