TEN YEARS! May 13th, 2023 marks the 10th year that the Black Resource Center has been established!
The center has created a safe space for Black-identifying students at UC San Diego through hard work, collaboration, and dedication. It was students on this campus that made a list of demands in 2010 that pushed for such a safe space to be designed. Thus, continuing their efforts, we created lifelong bonds, memories, and, most importantly, a community.
Help us celebrate the BRC’s anniversary all year long, looking forward to the many years ahead! 🖤
