Social Justice Leadership Seminar (SJLS)

Student employees and student leaders are critical in advancing positive change at Sacramento State. The Multi-Cultural Center offers the Social Justice Leadership Seminar (SJLS) to provide the knowledge and tools to challenge social inequities and become trailblazing agents. This four-part certificate program provides students with a foundation of social justice concepts and the tools to impact transformative change. The SJLS strengthens leadership skills, professional competencies, critical thinking, and social change skills. SJLS is tailored to the experiences of student employees, student leaders, and those interested in learning more about social justice. The SJLS will analyze social justice concepts through community discussion, activities, and presentations.

Inclusive Spaces Passport Activity & Mixer

The Multi-Cultural Center is committed to developing platforms for cross-cultural learning, conversation, and exchanging ideas. In partnership with equity, affinity, and cultural centers at Sacramento State, the MCC hosts an Inclusive Spaces Passport Activity and Mixer to expose students to centers that serve diverse populations. Students learn more about their services and how these spaces support students from historically marginalized backgrounds and identities.

Social Justice Book Club

The Multi-Cultural Center provides educational programs that advance social awareness and cross-cultural understanding. Sacramento State students, staff, and faculty are invited to join the center’s new Social Justice Book Club. This book club aims to highlight literature and authors that promote acceptance, social justice, and collective healing. The book club aims to build community by engaging with various literary genres such as poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels that reflect social justice, anti-racism, identity, and personal narratives.

Torchbearers Series

Sacramento State is home to multiple doctoral programs that are creating a new generation of professionals. It is important to elevate the work of doctoral students to the campus-wide community and to targeted populations who would benefit from learning about their study outcomes. The “Torchbearer Series” will speak to student curiosity, needs, interests, and aspirations and allow the campus community to learn about career pathways for graduate/doctoral students. Join the Multi-Cultural Center (MCC) and Doctorate in Educational Leadership (EDD) program for a programming series that spotlights and promotes doctoral students' work at Sacramento State.

All People’s Recognition Ceremony

At Sacramento State, many individuals work tirelessly to make the campus a better place and advance social justice efforts. The All People’s Recognition Ceremony is a yearly event, celebrated in May, which recognizes those who make a positive difference on campus but whose work goes unrecognized. Members of the Hornet family can nominate any student, staff, administrator, or faculty member for recognition.


It is important to honor the rich cultural heritage of Sacramento State’s famously diverse campus, promote visibility for marginalized groups, and foster a sense of belonging. The CultureFest is a yearly event, celebrated in March, aimed to bring people together, promote cultural harmony among the campus’ diverse ethnic groups, and get students acquainted with the resources offered by the university’s programs and student organizations.
