A Sense of Place: Exploring the Transition of Black Cultural Centers to Multicultural Centers

Date: 2 February 2011

Time: 3:30p.m. until 5:00p.m.

Location: African-American Cultural Center, 830 S. Halsted Street, Addams Hall Room 207

Lecturer: Belinda J. Carr, Director, Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center, Western Illinois University

Attracting and retaining a diverse campus community requires having a nurturing and supportive institutional culture. To that end this session will explore the nature and purpose of specific cultural centers and the evolution of multicultural centers. During this exploration we will examine issues such as funding, staffing, inadequate facilities, the challenges of transitioning from a specific center to sharing occupancy in a multicultural center, and the administration's impact on the success of the transition. Also information will be shared on the background and rationale for constructing the Multicultural Center at Western Illinois University.

The Centers for Diversity include: African-American Cultural Center, Asian American Resource and Cultural Center, Gender and Sexuality Center, Rafael Cintron-Ortiz Latino Cultural Center, Women's Leadership and Resource Center

This event is free and open to the university community and the public. Please call 312-996-9549 for more information.
