The Institute of Black Culture will offer educational, cultural and community building programs and initiatives sponsored by Black Affairs, Multicultural and Diversity Affairs and various University of Florida student organizations and departments. Spaces available for reservation by groups in the Institute of Black Culture include a multi-purpose event space and a conference room.

The sites for art are the 1st and 2nd story curved “Beacon” walls and curved window wall. All appropriate media will be considered. Both abstract and representational art will be equally considered. However, if representational, art should engage occupants through wholistic views with uplifting references to Black culture and history, and not solely the struggle narrative.
