Historical note

According to their website, "the Africana, Latin, Asian, and Native American (ALANA) Cultural Center has its roots in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s," particularly a student occupation of Merrill House in 1969 led by the Association of Black Collegians. Today, "ALANA provides a home and a meeting place to support students of color and their cultural identities and histories" but also welcomes the entire campus. Its activities include hosting a large number of events each semester, sponsoring university-wide programs and initiatives, and supporting student groups.
