Shabazz Center for Intellectual Inquiry

Located at 32 North Main Street, Shabazz houses the offices of the Afro-American Society and is used for a wide variety of student-initiated and Center-sponsored programs and events. The Center has an affiliation with the African and African-American Studies Program. The Center's upperclass student residents interact regularly with one of the College's Thurgood Marshall Fellows who resides in an adjacent apartment. The Shabazz Center for Intellectual Inquiry is sponsored by the Office of Black Student Advising.  Cutter/Shabazz is all single rooms.The mission of the Cutter/Shabazz Academic Affinity House and the El Hajj Malik El Shabazz Center for Intellectual Inquiry is to enhance the intellectual and cultural milieu of the Dartmouth College campus with particular regard to those issues which pertain to the historical and the contemporary experiences of people of African descent. As a residential site, Shabazz aims to enhance the out-of-classroom experience by incorporating contemporary academic inquiries into student residential space. Program initiatives promote the intellectual breadth of residents and stimulate intellectual dialogue within the greater community through public forum as well as individual and group activities. The Shabazz Center Staff (Graduate Resident Fellow, Undergraduate Advisor, Program Floor Representatives) organize programs and activities in conjunction with faculty members of the African and African American Studies Program to ensure the maintenance of a vibrant public discourse.  Cutter Shabazz is a substance free floor.Inquiries about the program can be addressed to Momo Wolapaye.
