African American Coordinating Committee

Charge

The African American Coordinating Committee was established in the early 1980’s in response to a need for African American students to have a supportive network of advisors and advocates within the university structure. The mission of the African American Coordinating Committee is:

To collectively serve and support the African American student population at NC State. Through collaborative university-wide efforts, the coordinating Committee will seek to ensure the academic success and graduation of every African American student who enters NC State. Relying on the many talents and experiences of this body, students will be a part of an environment that is conducive to their success, both intellectually and socially.

Members

Members consist of a representative from each of the university’s colleges. The Coordinating Committee also has representation from other campus units that are significant in the lives of African American students.
