The HUB Cultural Center
Student Center 2nd Floor (by Associated Students)
The HUB (Honoring. Uniting. Building.) cultivates an inclusive and equitable community and offers transformative cultural and educational programs that serve students’ learning and support their overall wellbeing.
We believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect. Differences in race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, nationality, and other intersecting identities and communities should not prevent people from living healthy, meaningful lives.
All of our lives are precious and meaningful.
We honor and value diversity of people, worldviews, and ideas. It is critical that we learn how to engage and work with people whose cultural and political perspectives are different and even opposite from our own.
The HUB is a place where all are invited to explore what it means to be a part of an authentic community. We welcome you as a whole person to bring all the parts of you that you want to share: your identities, perspectives, bodies, emotions, questions, concerns, lineages, strengths, and shadows. As a radically inclusive center and community, or whole system, we do our best to connect, engage, and learn with you. We invite you to explore this with us.
When the parts of ourselves and communities come together in authentic ways we are able to generate more power (energy) and experience greater vitality. And when we experience this vitality we increase our capacity to heal, evolve, and act.
We encourage students to help build a future that is more just, compassionate, and loving. Thoughtful social change is an ethical and spiritual necessity. We are aware that our world is afflicted by inequality, systems of discrimination, and ecological degradation, and so we enact change within ourselves and our communities. We envision a world where all people have equitable access to what we believe to be common resources: healthy food, clean water and environments, safe housing and community, viable livelihood, inspirational art, appropriate technologies and medicine, and relevant education. This is how we imagine social justice in a global context.
In the HUB we promote cultural expression and creativity because they are integral to well-being, social movements, and innovation.
