Dr. Tiffany Reed has been selected as Director of the Charles E. Brown African American Cultural Center at Indiana State University.

Reed was previously Director of Multicultural Programs and Services at Butler University and, before that, Program Coordinator for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Maryville University of St. Louis.

“Becoming the new Director of the Charles E. Brown African American Culture Center is an honor and privilege,” Reed said. “I recognize, respect and value the students, faculty and staff who have paved the way to lay the foundation of an important symbol to the Indiana State University campus and Terre Haute community.”

Said Interim Dean of Students Amanda Hobson: “Dr. Reed is bringing passion, experience, and enthusiasm for the work of supporting our African American, African diaspora, and Black students as well as creating sustained opportunities for learning and growth for our full campus community.”
