Timeline of William Monroe Trotter's Life

Over the years, curiosity about the man for whom the William Monroe Trotter Multicultural Center takes its name, peaked among faculty, staff, and students. Indeed, those with some sense of the center’s history—those, in fact, who knew that the multicultural center emerged in the aftermath of the black student protest movement of the 1970s—and those with little-to-no knowledge of any of this social movement history, all began to wonder about Trotter himself.


As a national leader in promoting an inclusive campus climate, the Trotter Multicultural Center serves as a campus facilitator, convener, and coordinator of cultural competence and inclusive leadership education initiatives for students. The Trotter Multicultural Center staff are anticipating an exciting and dynamic academic year as we prepare for the move to our new State Street location during the Winter 2019 semester!

Trotter on State is opening soon!

The Trotter Multicultural Center building on State Street is scheduled to open in April 2019. Check out this gallery to view images of the floor plan and renderings of the interior and exterior of the building!
