The division is composed of the leadership team and the staff and faculty in the CSA and CCCGC.
Center for Social Action (CSA)
The Center for Social Action (CSA) educates Saint Louis University students, faculty and staff on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion, forming them to more intentionally engage with our connected communities in a spirit of solidarity and to become advocates, activists, and agitators for social change.
Cross Cultural Center for Global Citizenship (CCCGC)
The Cross Cultural Center for Global Citizenship (CCCGC) promotes multiple cultural fluency and education, provides support services to historically underrepresented and marginalized populations and helps community members develop into critically reflective and socially just leaders. The CCCGC’s efforts are grounded in cultivating knowledge and engagement through intentional collaborations, experiences, initiatives and programs that challenge the SLU Community to critically assess their role as global citizens and to consciously advocate for a respectful campus environment and community at large.
Finally, DINO Force is a campus-wide task force that includes members from every single unit on campus who are designated as DEI specialists or interested in diversity on campus. DINO stands for Discover, Include, Navigate, Organize. Our charge is to ensure we know everything that is happening on campus in real time and developing solutions in real time that are campus wide and inclusive.
