African American

In the African American Affinity Group students will be able to network with like-minded alums and professionals who are passionate about their journey as African American students and who will help identify shared experiences and resources central to their academic success. This is a space where students can learn how to master their academic journey and become ready to develop as early career professionals: a community of members supporting the success of every student!


Scroll through the resources and articles to find information related to the African American experience and be inspired by success stories.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support students’ pathways to development, connect with students to offer insight and support, and inform the broader community of internships, community engagement, or job opportunities.
