Make sure the flyer has the date, time, location, contact info for questions, and a link or QR Code for students to RSVP to attend (if applicable).

Please note that all individuals on campus or at UCI health facilities, including students, staff, faculty, and visitors, are required to wear a mask or face covering while indoors, regardless of vaccination status, except when alone in an enclosed space, as of August 2, 2021. Campus visitors attending events at the Cross-Cultural Center should review the new guidance for campus visitors/non-affiliates that addresses face coverings, vaccination status, and meeting attendance. This update is in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health’s recent recommendations on masking and face coverings. Please refer to the Chancellor’s revised executive directive on face coverings for details.

Due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the status of in-person events may change at any time to align with campus or public health directives. These possible adjustments may impact in-person events at the Cross-Cultural Center. The staff will contact groups with reservations if new directives will impact events.
