Identity & Cultural Connections

The University of San Diego is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community. To that end, there are many campus resources for students who wish to explore their identities and cultural connections. This page highlights both the identity spaces and resource networks dedicated to serving and elevating identity groups on campus.

The Commons

The Commons is a collective of identity spaces that includes the Black Student Resource Commons, LGBTQ+ & Allies Commons, United Front Multicultural Commons, and Women's Commons. Located on the fourth floor of the Student Life Pavilion, The Commons is a hub for multicultural student organizations (see the UFMC site for more) and a go-to hang out spot on campus. The work of The Commons centers solidarity, intersectionality, and holistic identity development as we pursue equity and inclusion on campus.

Resource Networks

The University offers support for our undocumented and first-generation college students to navigate the college experience. Both of these initiatives are supported by a network of professionals on campus who also organize community groups and coordinate resources for students.
