Programs & Events
The mission of DIRC is to support students by building communities that foster a sense of belonging, creating opportunities to engage in self-discovery and critical inquiry, and serving as a hub for resources in inclusive and affirming spaces. We realize this mission primarily through formal and informal programs and events during the academic year. Our events are open to all CSUF students, and generally open to staff, faculty, and the public.
DIRC and each of the centers within host signature programs that are designed for and with our students. Our programs and events are what DIRC is really known for! We strive to always make our programs relevant to the current experiences, interests, and needs of CSUF students. The majority of our programs are collaborative in nature. All of our students hold multiple identities, so many of our programs are partnerships between two or more centers or partnerships with other departments and offices on campus. Our programs take many forms including in-person events in our centers in the Pollak Libary, virtual programs on Zoom, educational programs on Instagram, and even community building programs on Discord.
Some of our biggest programs of the year are our end-of-year cultural recognition celebrations where we recognize graduating students and celebrate with their families and friends.
