BIPOC

In SBS, we strive to provide a warm and welcoming space for students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color.  Your academic, co-curricular, and professional development success are central to our work in SBS, and here, you will find resources, experiences, and programs that are designed to help you succeed.  You’ll find stories about your peers who have found success, resources to help you accomplish academic tasks, job and internship postings, alumni profiles, and more.

Our SBS RISE program supports students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or other Persons of Color (BIPOC) majoring in an academic program within the College of Social and Behavioral Science.   The Center or Multicultural Advancement and Student Success (CMASS) is another great campus resource. Details about SBS RISE, CMASS, and other campus opportunities can be found below.
