SHARE WITH STUDENTS/YOU’RE INVITED: AAAN We Are One Retreat/Black 2 School BBQ on August 25th!

The African American Academic Network invites you to attend the We Are One Retreat and the Black 2 School BBQ. Both events serve as a ceremony to welcome, introduce and celebrate the official beginning of our students’ entry to the African American Academic Network and University of Illinois at Chicago community.   We definitely believe your participation will be paramount in meeting and start fostering relationships with our students; but also provide them a stronger sense of belonging to UIC.  To emphasize our commitment to our students, we humbly request your assistance in congratulating and welcoming our first year students as they will be ushered to the Black 2 School BBQ after the conclusion of the We Are One Retreat.    Please register for AAAN’s We Are One Retreat and Black 2 School BBQ by August 18!
