Resident Groups

Resident Groups (of the House/Center) are student organizations and New Haven community partners that have been an integral part of the Afro-American Cultural Center since its founding in 1969 and, in some cases (BSAY and UIC), even predate the founding of the Center. 

The service the House Resident Groups provide and the activities in which they participate aim to reflect the mission and values of the center. It is the responsibility of the groups and their membership to assist in the stewardship of the Center.  The resident groups are as diverse as Yale. Please take time to review the groups and visit their sites below!
