Our Mission

The mission of the Center for Black Cultures, Resources and Research (CBCRR) is to provide a just, safe, vibrant, inclusive, culturally supportive and socio-ecologically sustainable space for Black Students, faculty and staff—a home away from home where Black students can thrive and reach for their highest potential and discover their genius.

Our Vision

Our focus is on health, wellness, vitality and academic success. The Center’s vision draws its guiding inspirations from the varied and complex constellations of African/Black cultures, resources and research, which have provided and continue to provide African/Black peoples with general designs for living and patterns for interpreting their reality.
