Established in 2013 as a unit of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, the Black Resource Center (BRC) is a Campus Community Center which serves the entire population of UC San Diego while emphasizing the Black experience.
Birthed through strong advocacy of students, alumni and other supporters, the BRC seeks to provide support services and foster community for current undergraduate and graduate students. Services include but are not limited to: academic support services, mentoring/leadership development, co-and extra-curricular programming, and non-academic counseling. In addition to the student services, the center is positioned as a resource for alumni, faculty, staff and the community at-large.
The Center is not intended to be duplicative but will leverage existing resources and bring them together in a single location thus creating a sense of place and community and providing an important support system particularly for African and African American students on campus.
