AAS department grows rapidly, adds more interdisciplinary courses

With its first cohort of concentrators graduating in June 2018, the African American Studies (AAS) Department is looking to continue its work in education and research. In the past seven years, the department has hired a large number of faculty, growing rapidly to the six fully-appointed and eight jointly-appointed faculty members they have today. The new hires shaped the team, adding their own unique insights, backgrounds, and visions.  Currently, the AAS department is focused on its academic offerings, developing its curricula and opening courses to a broader swath of the University community. Upcoming classes will continue to cut across traditional disciplines, attracting students in many departments.
