Afro-Centric Student Program

The Afro-Centric Program focuses on the recruitment, retention, and holistic support of self-identifying Black and Afro-Centric students and it's allies. We are committed to elevating their voices, ensuring diverse representation, and are dedicated to equity work regardless of race, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation/expression, etc. We celebrate diversity and culture and pursue education of ourselves that benefits our community. We seek to increase access to information while providing resources for students to thrive while creating a campus culture that is not only tolerant, but creates a environment that is inviting and creates a system of belonging for our students of color. We believe that education should be equally accessible for all and provides incomparable opportunity for elevation and success in society.

Should students, faculty, or staff desire support, encouragement, or connection about our programs or have a general question, Please contact:
