The Michael & Libby Center for Civic Engagement/Wildcat Student Center at Bethune-Cookman-University is more than just a place. The Center serves as a guide for Bethune-Cookman University students in molding and creating their B-CU experience.  The Center believes that student involvement outside of the classroom contributes to important learning gains and a well rounded college experience that prepares students for life after graduation. In addition, the Center serves as a resource to connect with faculty, staff, administration, alumni and the community.  The Center also is used for meetings, forums, conferences, luncheons, banquets, weddings, parties, receptions and other special events. 

The Center hopes to serve as a catalyst to engage and involve students, faculty, staff, alumni and guest by:

  • providing, leadership training and mentoring to student leaders and advisors
  • inspiring students to become active members of the campus and community
  • creating  intentional programs that foster interactions among the diverse members of the University community
  • maintaining lively spaces and resources for student-focused initiatives that enrich our campus culture and community
  • designing and supporting programs, venues and resources that cultivate student expression
  • engaging student leaders to discover new knowledge that will enable them to critically evaluate evidence, make informed judgments, balance multiple perspectives and act ethically
  • promoting civic engagement, involvement and community partnership
