The Cross-Cultural Center for Excellence (CCCE) works with campus partners to curate and elevate programming that celebrates cultures, heritages, stories and experiences of underrepresented communities – historically, currently and/or institutionally. These events are curated into a monthly calendar and distributed to campus partners broadly. These events should also be present in appropriate platforms such as campus events system and AU Involve. All related information should be complete at least two weeks prior to the start of cultural heritage month.


Heritage and Cultural Celebrations

In celebration of the histories and contributions of historically marginalized identities, Auburn University commemorates heritage months and identity acknowledgements throughout the year. These recognitions are an opportunity for all members of the Auburn family to learn more about the traditions, people, scholarship, history and current experiences of those who've paved the way to create opportunities for all. 

Tiger Retreat

Tiger Retreat is a collaborative student belonging and student achievement program to support the transition of first-year underrepresented students. Tiger Retreat occurs on the weekend prior to the start of the academic year each fall semester. Incoming first-year students and current Auburn students build a sense of community.

Student Organizations

Multicultural Community

The Multicultural Community is a collection of on-campus active student organizations funded and  supported by the Cross-Cultural Center for Excellence. Student Belonging works with each organization to ensure they maintain active and accurate rosters, programs and membership. Monthly meetings of organization leaders are hosted to provide updates and professional/leadership development opportunities.

Each year, student organization presidents and/or vice-presidents are required to participate in a one-day leadership retreat part of this experience collaboratively coordinated with Greek Life and Student Involvement. Professional and leadership development opportunities are offered to organizations, particularly their leaders.
