Support the African, African American and Diaspora Studies Center

Last year JMU established the African, African American and Diaspora Studies Center in the College of Arts and Letters, which creates an exciting opportunity for more students to engage with the world-opening approaches and unique intellectual contributions of Black Studies, for the faculty to further advance this exciting work, and for the university to play a significant role in promoting the field and its scholars.

Your support will improve diversity, equity and inclusion at JMU by making possible programs inherently attractive to and supportive of students and faculty who are interested in Black Studies, including new AAAD scholarships and research fellowships, funded internships and study abroad placements, team teaching, scholars in residence and course development. Support students and professors from academic disciplines across campus with a gift to the AAAD Studies Center Fund today.
