The Carter G. Woodson Center for Interracial Education fosters communication about Berea’s Great Commitment:

“To assert the kinship of all people and provide interracial education with a particular emphasis on understanding and equality among blacks and whites as a foundation for building community among all peoples of the earth.”

We promote social and cultural change and exchange that underscores our institutional motto:

“God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth” (Acts 17:26).

In our service to faculty, staff, students and community, we offer various programs in the Center. The Center is in the Alumni Building on Berea’s campus.
