All students are welcome to participate in our interest meeting. 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.
Join us on May 13th at 1:00- 4:00 PM for a celebration of students in the Black, African, and African American communities at CU who will be graduating this semester! Whether you're a graduating student or alumnus we hope you'll join us to learn more ways to get involved with the CU Boulder Black Alumni Association and the Center for African & African American Studies.

Navigating Blackness and Mental Health "Racism as a Trauma"
Feeling isolated, alone, misunderstood and helpless is a common experience of many Black students attending Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs).
Join Dr. Jazmyne Peters and Dr. Sascha Arbouet for a virtual drop-in workshop to discuss common issues and topics within the Black community while centering Black wellness and mental health. Our goal is to foster a sense of comradery and belonging in a casual but meaningful way.
