Learn the History of Our Cultural Centers

See the timeline of historical events that contributed to the creation of cultural centers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst beginning in 1968.

The project, which began in 2018, seeks to equip interested undergraduate students with the skills to research primary and secondary sources of information, analyze and present data while also documenting and sharing the history of these centers and their work to support students. Alumni and current members of the UMass community are encouraged to participate and contribute to the expansion of this project by sharing photos and anecdotes of their experiences connected to the cultural centers. Guidelines for contributions are on the last slide.
