The Morrison Bruce Center is proud to continue programming throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

While we will continue to follow risk-mitigation guidelines to protect our participants, our staff, and the larger community, the majority of MBC programming during Spring 2022 will be  conducted in-person. We will update the website, advertise through JMU email, and contact past participants as we continue to finalize the spring schedule.

Please feel free to reach out at with any questions.
