About the Community
The Shabazz Center for Intellectual Inquiry aims to enhance the out-of-classroom experience by incorporating contemporary academic inquiries into student residential space.
The Shabazz Center Fellow, Undergraduate Advisor (UGA), and Staff Advisor organize programs and activities in conjunction with faculty and staff members of the African and African American Studies Program to ensure a vibrant public discourse.
The community houses the offices of the Afro-American Society and is used for a wide variety of student-initiated and Center-sponsored programs and events. The Center has an affiliation with the African and African American Studies Program. The Center’s residents interact regularly with the Shabazz Center Fellow, who resides in the adjacent apartment. Program initiatives promote the intellectual breadth of residents and stimulate intellectual dialogue within the greater community through public forum as well as individual and group activities.
