Campus Community Centers

NC State's Campus Community Centers are proudly comprised of the African American Cultural Center, the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women's Center. 

African American Cultural Center

The mission of the African American Cultural Center is to promote awareness of and appreciation for African American and other African descent experiences through activities and events that enhance academic excellence and strengthen cultural competence for the campus and surrounding communities. Students, staff and visitors are welcome to attend our programs and events and to visit the Art Gallery and Library in Witherspoon Student Center, the first building on NC State’s campus named for an African American, Dr. Augustus M.

GLBT Center

The mission of the NC State GLBT Center is to engage, develop and empower members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities and their allies. To fulfill that mission, we help students connect to form social support networks; offer identity-based and health-related information and resources; consult with students individually and collectively on issues related to personal identity and academic success; refer students to a wide variety of resources on campus and in the local community; provide professional and leadership development opportunities; and host educational events and programs.

Our vision is of a campus where students, staff, faculty and alumni feel a shared responsibility to increase their individual understanding of and comfort with diversity, to enhance their ability to connect with members of their own communities, to build coalitions across identity groups and to work collaboratively to raise awareness, promote respect and create a culture where they can advocate for equity, inclusion and social justice on behalf of themselves and others.
