Meet La CASA’s Undergraduate Culture Ambassadors (RCA’s) and Graduate Culture Ambassadors (GCA’s)! The Culture Ambassador position exists to help develop, coordinate and manage culturally enriching, thought provoking, supportive programming. In addition, RCA’s serve as leaders in the Chicanx/Latinx community, who create opportunities and promote unity within the Chicanx/Latinx community at USC. Finally, RCAs also serve as leaders in the intercultural USC community. RCA’s build bridges with other diverse communities at USC by collaborating with other offices/departments/clubs & organizations.
