The Graduate Association for African American History is a student ran organization
consisting of graduate students studying and are interested in topics related to the
life, history, and culture of black people throughout the Diaspora. Our organization
seeks to facilitate, encourage, sponsor, and develop programs designed to accomplish
the following purposes:
1. To strengthen the graduate curriculum of the University.
2. To serve as a liaison between students, faculty members, and the administration.
3. To develop a sound relationship within the campus community.
4. To develop a sense of professionalism among students enrolled in the University.
Throughout the school year, a number of events are hosted by the organization, such as our annual international conference, which attracts students and scholars from around the world. In the past keynote speakers have included noted scholars such as Sylviane Diouf (Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture), Dr. Eddie Glaude, Jr. (Princeton University), Deborah Gray White (Rutgers University), Leon Litwack (University of California- Berkeley), and Tera Hunter (Princeton University).
Current students that want to join GAAAH should log in through the university's RSO system TigerZone.
