About CAC

What is the Cultural Affairs Commission?

The Cultural Affairs Commission is one out of the thirteen offices in USAC, the Undergraduate Student Association Council. The mission of the Cultural Affairs Commission (CAC) is to put on quality programming with cultural, political, or social relevance that are accessible to all students. The commission is focused on “edutainment” (education + entertainment), arts activism, and student-run programs that ignite dialogue regarding current events, facilitate an exhibition of creativity, and promote cultural opportunities on campus. 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.

What is USAC?

“USAC” is an acronym for Undergraduate Students Association Council, the governing body of the Undergraduate Students Association (USA) whose membership is comprised of every UCLA undergraduate student. USAC’s thirteen student officers and commissioners are elected by members of the Undergraduate Students Association at an annual election held during Spring Quarter. USAC serves UCLA students in many ways, primarily advocating for student needs and concerns on and off campus.
