African American Student Initiatives

A space for support.

African American Student Initiatives (AASI) was established in 1993. Our goal is to provide a holistic experience that welcomes diverse ideas and people. Specifically, we focus on providing an inclusive environment for all Black/African American students to feel welcomed, celebrated, and supported. We have four focal points: Advocate, Build, Serve, and Succeed.
