The Black Student Programming Committee is a dynamic and inclusive community within the Center for African and African American Studies (CAAAS) at The University of Colorado Boulder. Committed to celebrating and advancing the cultural richness and heritage of the African and African American experience, this committee provides an engaging platform for students to collaborate, innovate, and lead.
At the heart of the committee's mission is the creation and execution of a diverse range of events, programs, and initiatives that highlight the achievements and contributions of Black individuals and communities and foster meaningful connections and conversations.
The purpose of this program is to create a cohort of students that actively participate in community engagement and acknowledge, appreciate, and exemplify intersectional African diasporic culture. Using innovative approaches to examine Blackness through a culturally relevant scholarly lens, these students are the voice of the CAAAS and will engage in intentional professional, personal, and intellectual development.
