CSU Stanislaus allows students to share their culture and celebrate who they are, whether that’s through events, exhibits, and more.
In honor of Black History Month, Stan State opened a poster exhibit to pay tribute to important African American figures. At the beginning of this month, another poster exhibit was displayed for Women’s History Month. Both of these exhibits took residence on the second floor of the J. Burton Vasche Library.
At the beginning of every month, there is an empowering statement being sent.
“We will do so again for Women’s History Month where we celebrate and get the entire campus to be aware that this is a Heritage Month celebration,” said Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Sacha Joseph-Mathews.
Statements about Heritage Celebrations are now provided to bring about more awareness and belonging at Stan State.

“The goal of these exhibits and celebrations is to help people seek out opportunities to expand their horizons and interact with a culture or an activity that maybe they never really thought of interacting with,” said Mathews.
Dr. Mirta Maldonado praised Stan State’s work to embrace and provide spaces for a diverse array of cultures.
“Stan does a great job providing cultural spaces academically,” Dr. Maldonado said.
To gain a better understanding of different cultures; getting involved in programs and events is one of the ways to do it.
“I wouldn’t be myself without my identity. It’s important to feel as though you know who you are,” said Jayden Cruz (Junior, Psychology). 
Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies, Dr. Goshu Wolde Tefera states that anyone can engage in the community and attend these events to learn more about different people’s cultures and experiences.
In February, the Black History Month events that Stan hosted were the Black Sign Language Presentation as well as the Sixth Annual Black Power Matters.
