Black History Month Events

It is a point of pride that UC Riverside is a standout college choice for Black students, and their success doesn’t stop at enrollment. Our students have a reputation of graduating at rates higher than any other group on campus. Plus, in the years between matriculation and graduation, they make remarkable contributions to our campus and surrounding community. African Student Programs and its efforts are a big part of that magnetic draw, remarkable retention and huge positive impact.

Since 1972, we have been a distinct example of excellence on this, the most diverse of the University of California campuses, and we want you to be a part of that exciting legacy.
