Campus Culture

A Place of Belonging

Sacramento State made a commitment to be an antiracism and inclusive campus and created a three-year plan to take the University on this journey, starting with BELIEVING there are challenges to overcome. This idea was brought to life on Santa Clara Hall with a series of murals painted by students, faculty, and alumni in partnership with Wide Open Walls. New murals will be created as the campus community works on BECOMING an institution that transforms policies, procedures, and perspectives so that its BEING represents all of humanity in its beautiful splendor and conveys a true sense of belonging.

“We know that any work around racism, inclusion and belonging is a journey. We wanted the murals to take us on a journey.”
