The ICC's work is intended to engage students, encourage learning and promote advocacy related to social justice topics. The ICC is an evolving space that strives to be a location where critical thinking and rich discussions can occur across diverse groups.

  1. The ICC acknowledges the inherent dignity in every member of the Oxy community.

  2. The ICC strives to enhance inclusion and bolster a sense of belonging for students from diverse and marginalized backgrounds.

  3. The ICC is an educational space intended to deepen understanding across difference and enrich the student experience.
