The Cross Cultural Center, is charged with retention of underrepresented students through a variety of means. The department fosters understanding of and appreciation for the cultures, traditions and histories reflected in the campus community, as well as social justice. The CCC sponsors multicultural arts and educational programs, symposia, workshops, seminars, lectures, exhibits and performances. Additionally, the department develops and fund opportunities for undergraduates and graduates to enhance their leadership potential. The CCC serves as a community center for the students, faculty and staff at UC Davis. The CCC provides a safe space for community members to explore themselves as well as learn about ethnicity/race and culture.

The Cross Cultural Centers collaborates with other campus departments such as the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, the Student Recruitment and Retention Center, the Women's Research and Resource Center, Educational Outreach Program (EOP), and Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS).
