Welcome!

Founded in 2000 to center the experience, concerns, and possibilities of students of the African Diaspora, Makuu: The Black Cultural Center is affectionately regarded as "home". Housed within the Division of the Vice Provost of University Life and located in the ARCH building in the heart of campus, Makuu provides a comfortable and convenient space for students to gather. Makuu's staff work daily to provide academic, cultural, and social support to students and groups, connecting them to additional resources and opportunities. Drop us a line, attend a program or link with one of the many student groups Makuu works with, follow us online, or stop by for a visit!
