1999-2000 Advisory Board

In keeping with the UC Office of the President policy for Organized Research Units (ORUs), the Director of the Center for Black Studies "shall be aided by a standing Advisory Committee, chaired by a faculty member other than the Director. The Committee participates actively in setting the Centerís goals and critically evaluating its effectiveness on a continuing basis."

The Center has been extremely fortunate in having so many committed and supportive individuals on its Advisory Board.
