The Malcolm X Cultural Center is a multifunctional site that provides space and opportunity for students to develop educational and social activities that enhance and broaden the awareness of the UMass Amherst campus, fellow students and the Five College area community with regards to issues that focus on the African Diaspora.
The Malcolm X Cultural Center’s goal is to promote community involvement in relation to these issues.
The Malcolm X Cultural Center is a vehicle for students to gain experience in community building and to get involved. Through providing resources, community service programming and collaborating with cultural registered student organizations and other agencies the Malcolm X Cultural Center seeks to foster an environment consistent with the values of its namesake. It is a place where self-respect, self-dignity, self–sufficiency and personal agency are modeled.
