What is the Center for Neurodiversity?

Pictures taken by Will Johnson

You probably know about the Centers for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) which include RISE UP, Women and Gender, Stonewall, Pa’lante, and Interfaith. There is also an Asian Community club, which is not yet a center but is under consideration.

But not many people visit the Center for Neurodiversity (CND), located in Admin 225 and open from 1-3 p.m. on weekdays. The CND is a great resource to use in between classes. There is a low sensory room–a quiet comfortable space that’s less stimulating, and a high sensory room that’s great for stimming, moving, and getting energy out. The CND is also one of a just a few places you get free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

Besides the space itself, the CND also organizes weekly programs in the Stone Hall Coffee House. On Mondays at 7 p.m., the popular Neurodiversity Sessions allow anyone to come and talk about various topics to related to neurodiversity, followed by movie screening at 8 p.m. Then on Tuesday, the CND hosts Study Nights from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

The Center for Neurodiversity provides so many opportunities for students to explore their neurodivergence and learn about others through programs, discussions, speakers, projects, media, research, and internships. Though Landmark College is already an inclusive college for neurodivergence, we want to increase the community’s understanding of others, provide support to those who have had a difficult past, spread positivity of diverse brains, and promote an accessible learning environment.
