Our purpose is twofold, not only do we seek to help students of color on campus, we also assist in educating the campus community on diversity. We want all students, regardless of background, to utilize and enjoy the services and resources we provide.

The center also serves as a hub for students to gather and hang out, get papers done in the computer lab, or do research in the Malcolm X Library.

We serve as the point of contact for the EXCEL summer bridge program. We invite incoming students of color and first-generation college students to come to campus and be paired with a mentor who will help them navigate their way through Ball State and make the transition to college.
