African American Affairs Staff

The African American Affairs promotes opportunities for growth and advancement above and beyond what students may experience within the classroom. African American Affairs develops events, programs and direct services that empower students to find their own voice, and explore the varying levels of their ethnic and cultural identities.

Through guest speakers, cultural outings, and experiential learning, students are prompted to gain a better understanding of the challenges that exist for black students pursuing an education in a predominantly white institution, and are armed with the tools to confront microaggressions in everyday life, confront social systems of oppression and promote equity and equality in the standard of education offered to not just African American students, but all students at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
