Bridging Cultures, multicultural & co-curricular program series

Bridging Cultures, multicultural

For months, we’ve watched as people across the country and around the world have marched in support of racial justice and ending systematic racism. 

And much like the people marching now represent a diverse community of people, so does the Chandler-Gilbert Community College. This intersection of what can be widely different visions will fill the spotlight at CGCC’s Bridging Cultures series, an opportunity for education around the diverse people who make up CGCC and our community. 

Exploring not only the Black, Hispanic, Native American and Asian and Pacific Islander experience, but also gender and sexuality, CGCC’s Bridging Culture series will bring filmmakers, authors and scholars to (the virtual) campus to expand the community’s collective minds.
