Our Mission

The African American and African Diaspora Studies Program (AADS) advances the university’s commitment to diverse perspectives and inclusive learning environments through course offerings, programming, and community engagement. It fosters interdisciplinary study for undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students by examining how people of African descent have shaped our world. As a program located in a city with a history of Black sociopolitical movements, we provide a forum to engage the complexities of Black life across African diasporas.
