Enriching the cultural experience for all students

Hair Time

Infographic that shares the assessment data of Cal Lutheran's Center for Cultural Engagement & Inclusion's Hair Time Program. It reads as follows. Hair Time program: By the numbers 2022-2023. 58 unique students served. 129 appointment requests received with 99 confirmed and 30 waitlisted. Outstanding service 9.4 average score students gave when asked how satisfied they were with their service on a scale of 1-10. Student Quote "Besides the fact that the braiding stylist had gifted hands with my hair, she was also great with her service. She treated me like family." 9 out of 10 students indicated they would not have access to hair care services in the area without this program. Unparallelled impact - 100% of students surveyed agreed or strongly agreed that the program has a positive impact on their mental health. Student quote "This was amazing for me as a Black student. I was scared I wouldn't get a haircut for months. There isn't a place I'd feel comfortable going to in Thousand Oaks."

Black students at Cal Lutheran often name lack of access to hair care services in the surrounding area as a barrier to their sense of belonging and overall wellbeing. In living our commitment to cultivating a welcoming and inclusive community for all students at Cal Lutheran, the Center for Cultural Engagement & Inclusion is proud to partner with Clip Dart to provide barber and hair services to students at no cost.
