CCA Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

  • California College of the Arts’ current and historical campuses are located in Huichin and Yelamu, also known as Oakland and San Francisco, respectively, on the unceded territories of Chochenyo and Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, who have continuously lived upon this land since time immemorial. We recognize the historic discrimination and violence inflicted upon Indigenous peoples in California and the Americas, including their forced removal from ancestral lands, and the deliberate and systematic destruction of their communities and culture. CCA honors Indigenous peoples—past, present, and future—here and around the world, and we wish to pay respect to local elders.

Who We Are

The Office of Residential Education (Res Ed) strives to provide a welcoming and educational living environment. The residential curriculum engages students at critical points in their personal and artistic development. We challenge and support our students through co-curricular learning opportunities that guide them to become artist-citizens. Students living in our residence halls are offered unique learning opportunities beyond the classroom.

Resource & Programs include:

  • Support and guidance from professional staff and trained student team members
  • Two CCA-sponsored residential communities: Blattner Hall and Founders Hall
  • Opportunities to build global community, celebrate diversity, and develop life skills
  • Residential curriculum
  • Connection and community building
  • Support for navigating successful relationships
  • Activities and workshops sponsored by Residential Education staff
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Referrals to other college resources
