WELCOME TO THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER
The African American Cultural Center is one of four campus community centers (along with the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women’s Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
The African American Cultural Center promotes 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.
Held the 4th Friday of the month, “Ujamaa Fridays sponsored by AACC” offers NC State University students, local college students and community members with opportunities to purchase clothing, NPHC paraphernalia, literature, posters, arts, jewelry, hair care and products that reflect Pan African culture and history.
NC State is one of 80 universities to receive a 2017 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. The HEED award recognizes universities whose diversity and inclusion efforts show a broad understanding of diversity, including gender, race, ethnicity, military service, disabilities, membership in the LGBT community and more.
