A Word on ALANA

ALANA was founded as a space that welcomes students to share their differences and commonalities, and we continue to uphold this core value. ALANA provides a space that accepts and invites students that are part of the LGBTQ community, and often hosts Safe Zone training.

ALANA  furthers this advocacy by highlighting intersections between race and the LGBTQ community.

Get Involved

The Africana, Latin American, Asian American, and Native American (ALANA) Cultural Center encourages you to get involved with one of the student groups we mentor, or attend the many events we sponsor to encourage multicultural exchanges.

While ALANA provides a home and a meeting place to support students of color and their cultural identities and histories, students, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds are always welcome.
Recently, a mural was painted that celebrates LGBTQ identities.
