The Black Community Services Center (BCSC), affectionately called "The Black House" ! focuses on the holistic development of our students, all of which aligns with our five pillars that include the following: academic / intellectual, alumni engagement, community building, leadership development, and mental health and well-being. All programming assistants and interns join BCSC committees that work on programming and initiatives that align with our five pillars. 

Upcoming Application Cycles

Our social media intern will also help us with our archives. Interns will be assigned to one of our committees to help with their quarterly goals and learn the ropes at the BCSC.
