Attend Community Centers Open House

The Campus Community Centers will hold their annual Open House events on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 in the following times and locations:

  • GLBT Center, Women’s Center and Multicultural Student Affairs, August 20, 2019
    1:00-3:00 p.m. in Talley Student Union, Suites 5230, 5210 and 4261
  • African American Cultural Center, August 20, 2019
    2:00-4:00 p.m. in Witherspoon Student Center, Suite 355

The centers welcome students, faculty and staff to drop-in, meet the staff and learn about the many programs and services offered by each center.

Throughout the year, each center hosts signature events open to the entire campus community as well as events for learning, enrichment and fun. (See the related article for a listing of all of the fall signature events.)

Opportunities to Grow

Each center has a myriad of introductory opportunities such as workshops, open discussions and support groups. As students progress through their undergraduate and graduate years, they can grow in the centers to take on bigger roles as mentors and leaders.

We welcome students to drop in at Open House and come back for more events in the coming weeks.

Interested Specifically in the Women’s Center?

This year, the Women’s Center will host two special sessions that will provide in-depth opportunities to learn about programming and volunteer opportunities there.

  • Women’s Center, August 22 and 28, 2019
    Connect with Women’s Center staff from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
    Presentations will happen at 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
    Women’s Center Lounge, Talley Student Union, Suite 5210

Women’s Center Director Lisa LaBarbera-Mascote says, “The Women’s Center is trying something new this year. With an increase in our cohort- and application-based programs, the center wanted to provide a one-stop shop opportunity for students to learn more about these programs. Instead of having to attend five different information sessions, we will be providing students with the opportunity to connect directly with staff and/or listen in during one of two full information presentations that will happen that day.”

Staff will be available throughout the day to answer questions. Focused presentations will occur at 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on the Womxn of Color Retreat, WomenNC Leadership Program, The Movement Peer Educators, Feminist Fridays, Masculinities Cohort, ASB Guatemala and volunteer opportunities.

LaBarbera-Mascote notes, “There will still be some information sessions closer to application deadlines, but we hope this event will give participants a broad understanding of all that we offer.”
