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 through the examination of race, LGBTQ issues, and the intersections between the two.

All Are Welcome

While ALANA provides a home and a meeting place to support students of color and their cultural identities and histories, all students, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds are always welcome.

Get Involved

The center mentors a variety of student groups that enrich the campus community through sponsored events and multicultural exchanges. Explore Student Groups
