Jeh Vincent Johnson ALANA Cultural Center

Vassar College

The Jeh Vincent Johnson ALANA Cultural Center provides a myriad of resources and programs to support students of color, and fosters cultural, social, academic and creative expressions.

The center offers opportunities for leadership development, intra-cultural and cross-cultural dialogues, lectures, big sister/big brother and alum mentoring programs. Also, a comfortable and affirming gathering space is provided for student organizations with similar goals in supporting students of color.

See the student organizations housed at the Center.

The director of the Center meets with students for personal, academic, and general advising and works with students of color on educational, social, and cultural programming. The director also provides support to ALANA identifying student organizations and is available to meet with student leaders. The Center’s success is the result of the efforts of ten student interns, an administrative assistant, a program manager, and you! Join us!

To schedule an appointment, to learn more about the Center and its resources, or to talk about an advisement matter, students are encouraged to visit the administrative office located in the Jeh Vincent Johnson ALANA Cultural Center or call (845) 437-5954.
