Black Student Services
The Multicultural Center aims to increase the outreach, recruitment, retention and, ultimately, graduation rates of Black students through Black Student Services. Our principal focus is creating a positive atmosphere for student learning in conjunction with facilitating regular social, educational and local outreach programs designed to raise student awareness, build community and promote exploration of racial identity.
