Black Culture Cooperative


The mission of University of Nevada's Black Culture Cooperative (BCC) is to increase the outreach, recruitment, retention and, ultimately, graduation rates of Black students. Our principle 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.
