Fostering a greater sense
of belonging

Across ASU’s four metropolitan Phoenix locations, these communities provide a gateway to a wide array of programming, services and resources that help to facilitate a greater sense of belonging among students of color and other historically underrepresented students.

Each community reflects representations of diverse cultures to affirm and celebrate the history and achievements of people of color and other historically marginalized groups. The communities serve as a hub to connect students to opportunities across the university to support their success. The spaces allow for gatherings and meetings for students and registered student organizations. Use your ASU ID card to access the spaces on any of the campuses.
