The Mission of the Black Cultural Center (BCC) is to enhance the Vanderbilt experience of Black students, faculty, and staff by providing effective programming and resources to address the academic, cultural, well being, and social needs of the community we serve.  The BCC is an essential resource for Vanderbilt and the greater Nashville community that seeks to highlight Black history, accomplishments, and culture. Our programs and partnerships promote greater cultural understanding, allyship, and appreciation for equity, diversity, and inclusion.
