2018 AJC Center Report
Building the Legacy.
Founded in 2012, the Anna Julia Cooper Center serves as a curricular hub for courses addressing intersectional identities; cultivates deep mentoring for undergraduate students; provides opportunities for intellectual collaboration, collegial interaction and scholarly support; offers meaningful events for local audiences; and convenes national stakeholders to marshal resources on behalf of neglected subjects and communities. From its inception, the JC Center has relied on and sustained mutually empowering relationships with community based organizations. This report is a story of what we have achieved as a result.
