The Cultural Centers for Academic Excellence are culturally-based support programs designed to provide Humboldt students with networks that blend cultural, community and faculty engagement with structured mentoring – to assist students in reaching their academic and career goals.


To create community-centered environments and opportunities that stimulate learning, academic engagement and student leadership.

To assist students in leveraging the various academic and social resources and opportunities on and off campus.

To facilitate cross-cultural learning experiences across campus.

To support identity development within a culturally-grounded framework.


The purpose of the Cultural Centers for Academic Excellence is to empower students as they navigate successful pathways through college in a way that honors, preserves and sustains diverse cultural value systems. Our programs, services, and mentoring promote the individual and academic advancement of our students in a culturally welcoming and dynamic environment.
