In light of the national and statewide response to COVID-19, we are prioritizing public health and safety. In agreement with the recommendations set by the CDC and JMU, we will be cancelling all MBC programs for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.

Guided by the principles of community well-being and measures to protect the people around us, our Center will continue to find ways to serve our community safely during this difficult time.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding!
