2017-2018 Applications

Be a part of one of the most rewarding commissions within USAC! We are now accepting applications for Interns and Staff positions for the 2017 – 2018 school year.

CAC is a commission that proves itself in its passionate and dedicated work of its members. From Bruin Bash to Hip Hop Explosion to the JazzReggae Festival, our events are some of the most recognized events at UCLA, bringing entertainment to both campus and the greater Los Angeles community, all in a collective effort to promote cultural awareness and dialogue.

Hiring Staffs:

Marketing (Online + Design)

Marketing works within all the other 9 series of CAC, creating graphics and promoting events through social media and flyering. Online concentrates on web, social media and all other sources of communication. Responsibilities include making sure that all social media accounts are updated, the blog on the website is up to par, and that all events that go on throughout CAC reach the most amount of people possible. Online marketing is looking for web developers, bloggers and social media enthusiasts. Design will cover all aesthetic aspects of the commission including photo/video documentation of events, livestream coverage, and graphics for header/cover photos and other profile pictures for all of the series. Design marketing is looking for photographers, videographers, and designers. All of marketing seeks to find dedicated and positive creatives.

Art Series

The Art Series strives to promote the arts on campus by educating, informing and inspiring students through a variety of artistic disciplines. This series is dedicated to working with student organizations and artists to curate the Kerckhoff Art Gallery and showcase new exhibitions every quarter. Gallery exhibitions highlight the talent of students and local artists in the mission of creating dialogue on relevant social, political, and cultural issues.

Concert Series

Concert Series works regularly expose students to a wide array of musical genres and cultures in the greater LA area. Every Monday at Kerckhoff Coffeehouse, Concert Series hosts musicians from all genres: hip-hop, jazz, alternative, even world music. The staff provides a space for self-expression in a student-to-student environment while fostering a community of musicians and music lovers at UCLA.


Worldfest at UCLA is a series that aims to unify the UCLA campus through the celebration of diversity and culture. The annual weeklong event occurs during springtime and showcases various cultures from across the globe. Worldfest will present a wide range of events such as a culture show, socially relevant film screenings, artist performances, cultural food in the dining halls and much more!

DiverseCity Tours

DiverseCity Tours is a series of the Cultural Affairs Commission dedicated to organizing free student trips to fascinating places in the greater LA area. Through these trips, the series aims to provide students with opportunities to learn more about other cultures by allowing them to step out of their Westwood/UCLA comfort zone. DiverseCity Tours aims to provide opportunities to break out of that uniformity and to experience the amazing diversity just outside our campus.

The Collective

The Collective is dedicated to supporting culturally significant groups on campus. As a helping hand to UCLA organizations, the collective guides other student organizations in event planning. Services include, but are not limited to, booking venues, marketing, advising fundraising, etc. Organizations that are a part of the Collective gain increased funding benefits from the Cultural Affairs Mini-Grant Fund as well as access to CAC’s Media and Marketing staff. The Collective acts as a valuable resource, helping groups reach out and connect with other student organizations as well as develop a relationship with UCLA’s Cultural Affairs Commission.

The Word

The Word on Wednesday seeks to create a safe, open space for students to express themselves creatively, while pushing poetry beyond the proverbial *snaps* and claps (though, even those are welcome in our all inclusive environment) in an effort to promote words as the written and oral outlets for all UCLA students to celebrate individuality, build community, find power and purpose via the voice, learn the professional side of this special artifice of poetry through quarterly, free, super dope, open writing workshops hosted by prominent poets in and outside of Los Angeles. In addition, The Word vows to foster greater understanding of all art forms that utilize The Word as an instrument and provide a venue for your stories, to hear the stories of others through quality, spectacular productions in poetry (of course), music, comedy, live art, live shows and more.

Hip Hop Congress

Hip Hop Congress at UCLA is dedicated to addressing issues using Hip Hop as a vehicle of activism. HHC firmly believes Hip Hop is not only a genre, but also a cultural movement that effects how we interact with one another. Throughout the year, this student-run group provides the UCLA community with the resources and opportunities to explore the four pillars of Hip Hop: DJ-ing, MC-ing, B-Boying (break dancing), and Graffiti Art. Every February, Hip Hop Congress hosts an annual Hip Hop Appreciation Month. Past events have included student mix-tape release parties, an LA apparel fashion show featuring student models, and panel discussions.

JazzReggae Fest

JazzReggae Fest’s staff is dedicated to the planning and execution of this annual festival, which has evolved since its inception 30 years ago. The festival is entirely student run, with student positions available in artist relations, marketing, vendor relations, sustainability, art, and more. It is our mission to produce a diverse, sustainable, and enriching festival that brings together UCLA students and the larger Los Angeles community. A celebration of good vibes, jammin’ music, and cultural enrichment, JazzReggae Fest is best known for hosting prominent musicians from genres ranging from jazz, soul, reggae, and hip hop. The festival also features international and local craft and food vendors, live visual artists, and a sustainability component.

JazzReggae Fest hires Fall of 2017.
