Sonja Haynes Stone Center

The Sonja Hayes Stone Center for Black Culture and History was established in 1988. It is the mission of the center to raise awareness and appreciation for African-American culture in the community and around campus. The 44,500 square-foot building first opened its doors in 2004.

The Stone Center was named after the late faculty member Sonja Hayes Stone, who passed away in 1991. She was an advisor to the Black Student Movement. She was also active in promoting Afro-American studies and expanding the curriculum.
