Create a Nexus for Arts and Culture

It is critical that the Stone Center maintain our facilities in order to provide the highest level of service to our visitors and constituents. Private support allows us to carry out our mission within the Center's walls, across campus and in the community at-large.

Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History

    The Stone Center is a premier location for presenting signature programs, and our visitors deserve the highest level of service. A large, well-equipped space is critical to advancing our mission. Our tri-level, 44,500 sq.-foot building boasts seminar rooms, classrooms, a 10,000-volume lending library, a computer classroom, art gallery and museum, 360-seat auditorium, a multipurpose room, a dance studio, several office suites, single offices and space for visiting scholars/artists. We directly impact over 3,000 faculty, staff, students and community visitors each year through numerous events and initiatives.
