Center for Cultural Fluency

The Center for Cultural Fluency is housed within the J. Thomas McCarthy Library on the Doheny Campus. Established by the Education Department in 1995, the Center provides education students and teachers in Los Angeles with instructional materials for K-12 classrooms that portray the experiences and perspectives of the diverse cultures of Los Angeles. In addition to fiction and nonfiction books, the instructional materials collection includes videos, audiocassettes, pictures, posters, and software. Through the use of these materials, teachers expand their cultural fluency and provide more inclusive classroom environments and curricula.
