African American Student Center

Mission Statement


The AASC is committed to assisting African/African American/black college students in successfully completing their degree programs. It provides retention and outreach programs and services that stimulate growth and development. The AASC is dedicated to preparing students for leadership and promotes academic excellence. The AASC is also characterized by the African proverb, “It takes an entire village to raise one child.” This is evident in the AASC's interconnectedness with the campus and surrounding community. These components enhance the educational experience of African/African American/black students at Cal Poly Pomona, resulting in the enrichment of the entire community.
