We are located in CUB 231, and we are open Monday-Friday from 9-5. The center is currently limited to a four student capacity due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and all visitors must wear masks and physically distance from others in the center.

We acknowledge that we live and work on unceded Susquehannock land, land that should belong to the Seneca-Cayuga Nation today. We are actively committed to working alongside their elders and youth to restore the sovereignty and self-determination of all Indigenous and First Nation peoples on this land and across the world.
