Managed by the Student Life and Development office, the mission of the Student Resource Centers is to provide students facilities and programming to meet their cultural, social, and academic developmental needs. The Student Resource Centers also serve as an educational resource for students and staff who wish to learn more about African American, Asian Pacific, Chicano/a, Latino/a, Native American, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender issues.
There are five student-run resource centers on campus where students may go for information and support. Activities in the centers vary and may include small group meetings, planning for major cultural events, study hall, peer mentoring and dissemination of information on community resources/volunteer opportunities and scholarships. Some centers may also house selected reading material.
