Work has been progressing steadily on the new Center for Equity, Leadership, & Community, which will serve as a hub for many student support services. Opening formally in March, it is the new home of the Promise Scholars Program, Student Life & Leadership, SparkPoint and its food pantry, Mana, Umoja, Puente, the Honors Project, and Project Change. Students in CSM Learning Communities will be able to gather in spaces furnished with comfortable furniture, study tables and rooms, and social spaces. Student government will hold meetings in the large state of the art conference room, while Promise Scholars Program counselors will have private space to be able to work with their students. Located in the former Building 17, the space has been transformed into bright, open, and tech-ready space for supporting students.
A ribbon-cutting is planned for Wednesday, March 11, 2-4pm. Students are planning a mix of performances and presentations related to the programs in the Center. More information will be coming soon on this event.
