CCC Affiliation

The Cross-Cultural Center Affiliation process is for campus organizations that are looking to involve themselves with the CCC and whose mission aligns with the CCC values-- Activism, Social Justice, Community, Education, Empowerment, and Diversity.  See below to learn more about the process, benefits, and responsibilities.

Affiliation Process

In order to become an affiliate with the Cross-Cultural Center, your organization should follow these steps:

1. RE-REGISTER
Re-register with Student Life & Leadership and pay the registration fee. Be sure to include your CCC Affiliation during registration. You will be contacted by one of the CCC staff members after registration to meet and approve your affiliation.  For more information about re-registration visit Campus Organizations REGISTRATION.

2. READ & UNDERSTAND AFFILIATED BENEFITS
Read and understand all "Cross-Cultural Center Affiliated Student Organization Benefits" which you can find above. Share those benefits with your organization so they can utilize the CCC.

3. MEET WITH THE CCC STAFF
After registration, the organization must attend the CCC Quarterly Affiliates Mandatory Meeting.  For campus organizations that have not affiliated last year, two board members are asked to meet with one of the CCC Staff.  All organizations are required to meet with CCC staff at least once a quarter.

4. ENGAGE IN THE COMMUNITY
Affiliation with the CCC requires an active engagement in the CCC community. Be sure to take a look at "Cross-Cultural Center Student Organization Affiliated Benefit and Responsibilities” to learn more about how to engage.  The CCC is only as great as you make it!
