The Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center (GOBCC) is more than just a facility for students to study, take classes and develop professional skills. It’s also a place to hang out and build a sense of community and belonging.
Recently, Maurice Gipson, John Middleton and I visited the GOBCC. We met with students and staff and took a tour led by AnDrea Jackson, senior student support specialist, and Khesha Duncan, assistant director of student support services. It was great to be back and hear updates on their important work.
In addition to outreach on campus, the GOBCC collaborates with city partners to make the Columbia community a more welcoming environment for people from all backgrounds.
The GOBCC is just one example of our commitment to inclusive excellence.
