Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Contains records of the American Cultures Center and material related to the creation and implementation of the American Cultures requirement at UC Berkeley.
Rooted in histories of powerful student organizing, the American Cultures (AC) Center promotes the teaching and learning of race, racism, and anti-racism within institutions, communities, and local and transnational lives. The center supports community engagement for courses and enhances student learning by creating social justice projects that impact community partners and the university. Passed by the UC Berkeley Senate in 1989, the AC requirement was the first and only campus-wide graduation requirement for all UC Berkeley undergraduate students. AC courses are offered in more than fifty departments in many different disciplines at both the lower and upper division level.
