Get Involved

We encourage you to get involved with one of the student groups we mentor, or attend the many events we sponsor to encourage multicultural exchange on campus. 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.

Through our sponsored programming and student organizations we challenge you all to explore issues of inclusiveness and multiple identities.

A Word on ALANA

Alana was historically founded as a space that welcomes students to share their differences and commonalities and now we continue to uphold this core value. Alana provides a space that accepts and invites students that are part of the LGBTQ community. Alana provides explicit support by allowing the space to be used for Safe Zone training. Recently, a new mural was painted that is dedicated in celebration of LGBTQ identities. This mural acts as physical representation of the supportive community by highlighting prominent leaders in the community like Harvey Milk and more. Moreover, Alana only furthers this advocacy by highlighting intersections between race and the LGBTQ community.
