A community of opportunity with the Black Student Resource Center

Get active in creating an enriched Black experience in our FLC community. Take part in planning campus events that celebrate the value of Black American voices and raise awareness of the challenges that BIPOC face in our society today.

We promote scholarship, foster leadership, and cultivate community for students through the committed, collaborative effort and support of faculty, staff, and the Durango community. You can use the space as a comfortable place to study, get tutoring, and connect with friends. The BSRC is a hub for the community and working space of the Black Student Union. 

The Black Student Union

Black Student Union

We aim for diversity and inclusion for all student voices at Fort Lewis College. We're united in enhancing the Black experience for all who identify ethnically or culturally, but are open to students of all backgrounds. The Black Student Union uplifts and supports the African-American voice through honor, celebration, and, most importantly, acknowledgment.
