Basic Needs, Dreamer, Health, LGBTQ+, and SparkPoint Center
Spring 2021 student leaders within Associated Students of Diablo Valley College repurposed
the Inclusivity and Wellness Center as a collaborative effort with the college to
create the Basic Needs, Dreamer, Health, LGBTQ+ and SparkPoint Center. The expected
opening is Spring 2024.
Previously, student leadership within the Associated Students of Diablo Valley College
(ASDVC) and Diversity Affairs Committee (DAC), identified a need in 2014 for more
inclusive campus space for students. With a committed, steady effort in partnership
with the College, the Center was developed and implemented.
