The Intercultural Learning Center (ILC) opened in 2016 in Room 122 of Steinert Campus Center, next to the Student Life Office on the main Fresno Pacific University campus, 1717 S. Chestnut, Ave. Our mission is to build bridges between people through dialogue, cultural understanding and interpersonal interactions, and our goal is to provide facilities and services that help students achieve academic success.

The center offers laptop computers, printers, flat panel screens, and other technology, as well as study space for individuals and groups. This is a friendly, quiet place to do academic work and meet people of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds.
