Auburn University in Alabama, US has broken ground on its National Pan-Hellenic Council Legacy Plaza to honour Black Greek student organisations on campus.

The new symbolic and functional space is intended to recognise the legacy of Black Greek organisations and African American culture.

It will represent the past, present, and future of Black Greek organisations at Auburn, the university said.

The schematic will comprise a wall with ten commemorative markers including nine representing each of the NPHC chapters and the tenth to explain the history of Auburn’s Black Greek Letter Organizations.

Bordering an open lawn and a naturally landscaped terrace, the area will provide space to serve as an outdoor venue for informal gatherings and events.

The space will be also be open to Auburn’s students and student organisations.

The plaza is located near Auburn’s The Edge at Central Dining facility, close to the Campus Green area, Jordan-Hare Stadium and the Academic Classroom and Laboratory Complex, which is due to open in spring 2022.

Auburn president Jay Gogue said: “The NPHC Legacy Plaza is one more way Auburn demonstrates it supports an inclusive and diverse campus environment. I am particularly proud of our students coming together to create the first physical landmark on Auburn’s campus for any Black student organization.”

Auburn NPHC president Jackson Thomas said: “The legacy plaza is for the betterment of Auburn and for the betterment of minority students on campus in the years to come. We are very grateful for your support in working toward these goals.”
