The mission of The Black Student Center is to promote the academic, cultural, social, and political consciousness of students of color by actively engaging in institutional partnerships that will result in the overall increase of student recruitment, active member participation, retention, and graduation rates.
Thanks to the students who made the request and President Haynes and the faculty and staff who stood in solidarity, The Black Student Center was officially opened on February 23, 2017.
