The Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center provides ongoing cultural experiences, academic enhancement opportunities, and social programs designed to aid in the adjustment of African American students at Western Illinois University. The Center also serves as an important resource in providing cultural enrichment opportunities for Western Illinois University and the region.


The Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center is committed to helping the campus community adjust to a multicultural and multiracial society without regard to race, age, creed, economic status, or position in life. This commitment is fulfilled primarily through the sponsorship of programs designed to broaden public awareness of African American culture and heritage.
