Black Cultural Resource Center

The Chabot College Black Cultural Resource Center (BCRC) is a collaborative space designed by students, for students. The BCRC is intended to support the needs of our students who identify as Black, African American, Afro-Latinx, and all other students of the African diaspora. We aim to engage the whole campus in learning about the African diaspora, and cultures connected to the diaspora. The BCRC provides services such as mental wellness counseling, academic and career counseling, transfer resources, and basic needs support. We also have a computer lab, a lending library, and a quiet space for studying. The BCRC hosts cultural events and workshops on diverse topics that motivate students to explore new areas of interest. Come visit us! We are located on the first floor of the library building in room 136.
