Join us for the inaugural Celebration of Cultures. The fun is on the way!

Date: Thursday, December 8, 2022
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Town Square, University Centers

Description: An extraordinary cultural experience to include lunch & performance(s) focused on celebrating and amplifying the diverse cultures, perspectives, and attributes in the range of communities/identities that exist across UC San Diego, with an emphasis on staff and faculty unified under an “I AM UC San Diego” theme. Instilling school pride and pride of workplace. This effort expands on and serves as a reimagined version of the Flavors of Diversity Luncheon previously coordinated by several affinity groups (BSA, CLS/A & PASA) pre-pandemic.

Get Connected: As part of this event, all Tritons are invited to share stories, strengths and personal attributes across social media platforms that connect you to UC San Diego using the hashtag, #iAmUCSanDiego
