Make a Difference with a Student Club

Joining a student club or organization provides college students with many opportunities from networking to making friends. Additionally, you can join a student club or organization that explores specific areas that intersect with the Black experience.

Student Development at each campus offers a variety of engagement opportunities focused on promoting the Black and African-American experience, as well as co-curricular and cultural programs focused on educating the broader student body about this lived experience and promoting anti-racist ideals.
