Tennessee Tech University students, faculty, and staff founded the Black Cultural Center in 1989 to provide African American students a space to socialize, be supported, and learn about African American culture. The Center formally opened in August 1990.

Since at least 1992, the faculty, staff, and students associated with the Center have also strived to create a welcoming and supportive environment for other underrepresented students on campus.
