Mission Statement

It is the mission of the University of Wyoming African American & Diaspora Studies program to foster teaching, research, and service relating to the ideas and experiences of African people in America and throughout the world.

Academically, AADS offers undergraduates an opportunity to engage in an interdisciplinary examination of African American & Diaspora history, culture, and life from ancient times to the present day.  AADS is also directly tied to the African and African American community offering a unique opportunity for interaction between the students who attend the university and the community at large.

Students who major or minor in AADS will be prepared to pursue careers in humanities, social sciences and the law.  Perhaps, more importantly, UW graduates with a background in African American & Diaspora Studies will find themselves ready to participate in a rapidly changing world where multicultural training and a deep appreciation for diversity will help students succeed in whatever path they choose.
