The first look at designs of the University of Oregon Black Cultural Center have been unveiled. Construction does not have a set start date but will break ground sometime this fall.
It will open in Fall 2019 and will cost $2.2 million. $1.7 million of the funding has come from donations.
The center will be 3,200 square feet and located at East 15th ave. and Villard Street. The decision to build the center came in direct response to one of the demands made by the Black Student Task Force in 2016.
