IMPORTANT NOTICE: In keeping with the campus's direction to avoid holding events where people gather, we are hosting all events via zoom during Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

 We thank you for your patience and support of our World Cultures events.

  World Cultures Program

Mission Statement: Broaden your mind, Open your heart

Experience global culture through film, drama, literature, expert speakers, and the arts. World Cultures events encourage understanding, appreciation, and celebration of human diversity on our campus and in the world. Explore beliefs, cultures, and art. World Cultures guests include artists, musicians, dancers, actors, writers, historians, activists, community leaders, athletes, and educators.

World Cultures highlights the interests of the campus community, by encouraging faculty from many departments to host programs illuminating areas of expertise. See the night sky in the planetarium, engage in historic events, and participate in interactive exhibits. Listen to your muse, take in a performance of City College theater, dance, or music. Celebrate specially designated months of the year; such as Black History Month, Asian-Pacific American Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Disability Awareness Month, and Native American month.
