What We Do:

The Black Resource Center, a unit of The Dean of Students, exists to foster students' educational experiences, encourage unity within the Black community, enhance the exploration of cultural and personal identities, and promote leadership and inclusive excellence.


The Black Resource Center enhances the opportunity for African American student success, retention, and graduation by providing both resources and programming activities (academic, educational, social and cultural) that enrich the learning environment for African American and all students.


The Black Resource Center is located in Grinnell Commons. Please stop by anytime or call us at 453-3470 to make an appointment to discuss the resources we provide.
