The Center for Cross-Cultural Research
The Center for Cross-Cultural Research (CCCR) is a community of learning and practice. We are WWU students, faculty, and staff who are committed to learning and professional growth as we conduct cultural research. Our goals are to learn from each other, collaborate on projects, and advance cultural research in equitable ways.
Please contact Dr. Anna Ciao (firstname.lastname@example.org), Director of the Center for Cross-Cultural Research, with any questions or feedback.
The Center for Cross-Cultural Research (CCCR) at Western Washington University provides a space for students, faculty, and staff who are interested, and engaged, in culturally-focused psychological research to learn from each other, collaborate on projects, and to apply for and receive financial support for such work.
The CCCR seeks to provide a space in which diverse participants may learn, network, and enjoy the company of colleagues in an environment of mutual human respect. We recognize a shared responsibility to create and hold that environment for the benefit of all. Therefore, we provide the following expectations for our treatment of one another at Center-related events:
- To refrain from harassment or intimidation based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, age, appearance, religion, social class, or other group status.
- To refrain from sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention, stalking (physical or virtual), or unsolicited physical contact.
- To refrain from sustained disruption or threatening of anyone speaking at a Center event (verbally or physically).
- To frame discussions, questions, and comments as openly and inclusively as possible and to be aware of how language or images may be perceived by others. Alcohol is available at some CCCR-sponsored events and may be consumed by those of legal age. Alcohol at CCCR events will be distributed following local and state statutes. Because excessive alcohol leads to impaired decision-making, CCCR discourages excessive drinking during these events.
This policy has adopted language from various sources, including: Association for Research in Personality Code of Conduct and SIPS Code of Conduct
