Black Student Experience Working Group



Work collaboratively among students, faculty, and staff with a spirit of creative problem-solving and an openness to build inclusive and positive environments for Black student success and holistic well-being. Enhance the student experience by improving campus climate and student success opportunities for Black Highlanders. 

This working group was not formed to do the work of other departments in supporting Black scholars; it was formed to ensure that the entire campus continually keeps Black scholar success as a focus in words and actions.
