Located in the Highsmith University Union, Room 114. Art work, study hall, program events, and much more! The Intercultural Center is a resource to be utilized by the entire UNC Asheville community.

Students, faculty, and staff are assured that everyone—regardless of race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status—is welcomed in this safe space. Furthermore, the center is multipurpose and students are encouraged to gather, study, and socialize within its corridors. The center is as a site of self-discovery. Moreover, the center’s programming is intentional and explores cultural traditions. Its staff is dedicated to creating opportunities for students to engage in skills-building that lead to lifelong learning for intercultural communication and healthy individual and group esteem. Students can communicate their concerns on issues of racism, sexism, privilege, social justice, and homophobia. By doing so, they align themselves with the Intercultural Center’s focuses of social responsibility, cultural sensitivity and awareness, and equity.

UNC Asheville’s MLK Commemoration kicks off on Monday, Jan 25! Have you registered yet???

Panelists London Newton, Bryan Thompson (Warren Wilson College), Antanette Mosley & Sandra Kilgore (Asheville City Council) will discuss their vision of liberation and how the seemingly oppositional spaces of organizing and electoral politics can use coalition building to take a holistic and inclusive approach to freedom fighting in and for Black communities.

The Intergalactic Soul exhibit has been closed due to a leak in the gallery but will be reopened early next week! Come back to our page for more updates!

Intergalactic Soul is a multimedia Afrofuturistic exhibition made up of Charlotte-based visual artists Marcus Kiser and Jason Woodberry and Durham-based performance artist Quentin Talley. Their work broadly focuses on presenting contemporary conversations about American black experiences, using the aesthetic and conceptual prisms of popular science fiction and comics to chronicle the various adventures of their fictional protagonists Astro and Pluto.

The artwork explores a cosmic sci-fi theme that is driven by social, political and cultural undertones. With multiple exhibits across the country, this exhibit began in response to the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
