UNITI Cultural Center

The UNITI Cutural Center (UCC) was established in 1978 and is based upon its central mission, which is reflected by the acronym for  "United Nationalities in Transcending Ideologies."  The UCC  promotes cultural diversity,  inclusion, and equity at Stony Brook University. Scheduled to open as a new facility in the Stony Brook Union on October 23, 2021 (during Homecoming), construction of the UCC is made possible by a New York State grant initiated by Stony Brook alumnus Carl E. Heastie ‘90,  Speaker of the New York State Assembly.

The UCC will offer students in-person and virtual cultural programs and opportunities to engage with their peers, faculty, and staff  on a variety of contemporary issues, including the intersectionality of race/ethnicity, gender, religion/spirituality, differ ent abilities, socioeconomic status, and other dimensions of social identities. In its new location, the UNITI Cultural Center will continue to reflect Stony Brook's rich history of the African-American and Latino experience , while building upon our commitment to inclusion, equity, anti-racism, and social justice.
