The César Chávez Cultural Center Celebrates 35 Years of History at UNC

We are honored and greatly overjoyed to have come this far! We recognize the tremendous contributions our beloved students, faculty, staff and alumni afforded to our very existence and continued success. 

While we are currently living in unprecedent times, we recognize the importance of celebrating this year’s milestone. We wish to recognize the work of those who paved the way for the establishment of the César Chávez Cultural Center  (CCCC) and those who continue the legacy of paying it forward.  

Please join us in celebrating 35 years by participating in a series of special virtual events advertised on the César Chávez Cultural Center social media outlets, and our monthly newsletter.
