Students in the African-American Studies program get to participate in a variety of interesting and exciting events and opportunities.
Over the years, the program have sponsored a two-day Symposium studying Hip-Hop culture, with both formal academic presentations along with an evening fashion show and concert.
AAS also works with Sankofa, the official Black Student Union at UIS. Our students have a network of faculty, a graduate assistant, and fellow students they can turn to for advice, social events, and
even just friendship.
