We Are Family: UC Merced's Black Community

This webinar will highlight black student support services, the classroom experience, research opportunities, and current and alumni success stories. Event speakers will include Cecil E. Howard, UC Merced's Interim Vice Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer.

Education, with few exceptions, is often regarded as one of the pillars of success in the African American community. Under the right conditions, it can provide you with the necessities in life – a career, family, home – and meet your individual goals. It can help fulfill your dreams and empower you to become a family success, future leader and the next role model of your community!
