All are welcome.

The Office of Mission & Identity provides a place at Cal Lutheran for people who are exploring and deepening faith, seeking to be God's hands in the world.

We accompany and support people at the intersection of faith, life purpose, and service to others, because people who discover and follow their purpose can transform a community—and the world.

Celebrating Juneteenth

Juneteenth means giving time and attention to a moment in history that continues to define American identity. It is as celebratory as it is reflective, with the potential to galvanize further social change. Understanding racism throughout American history and learning about African American culture is an important way to honor the occasion.

We are grateful for the extensive variety of ways in which we can gather knowledge on this important holiday and then share what we have learned with others. Learning fulfills part of the mission and spirit of Juneteenth: to remember this history and use it to effect positive change now and in the future. Through the efforts of the Center for Cultural Engagement and Inclusion, Student Life, and the office of Mission and Identity, a variety of ways for you to engage, voice, and act have been compiled.
