Northeastern Illinois University officially opened its expanded Angelina Pedroso Center for Diversity and Intercultural Affairs during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 30.

After four years serving the University’s diverse student population, the center has grown to include the Women’s Resource Center and LGBTQA Resource Center, which currently are housed in separate offices. The project also created space for the Undocumented Students Project, additional programming space for students, a gender-inclusive restroom and a lactation room.

Watch the video to see what the ceremony’s official speakers had to say about the project, as well as comments from students.
