The Legacy and Purpose of ACAAGS

The Associa+on for the Concerns of African American Graduate Students

(ACAAGS) is unlike any other organiza+on on the campus of North

Carolina State University. ACAAGS provides a unique opportunity for

African-­‐American graduate students and students throughout the African

Diaspora at NC State to socialize, network, and support one another

through the graduate school process. Membership in ACAAGS also

provides an outlet for graduate students to voice their concerns about the

academic process, create a network of support from fellow students and

increase involvement in the local African-­‐American Community. Many

African-­‐American students who aIend mee+ngs have expressed a sense

of isola+on in being one of few minority students in their program. For

this reason, it is impera+ve that we con+nue the legacy of the

organiza+on and support the many ways in which it provides solace for

African American students at NCSU.

The ACAAGS Awards Program

For over 26 years, ACAAGS has honored the academic and

leadership achievements of African-­‐American graduates,

undergraduates, faculty and staff. Each year ACAAGS gathers the

university’s top achievers at the graduate and undergraduate level

to acknowledge their great contribu+ons to the intellectual effort at

NCSU. Students with a 3.0 and above G.P.A. are recognized by a

representa+ve from their college with a cer+ficate congratula+ng

them on being at the top of their class. Faculty and staff are

acknowledged for helping to create a suppor+ve environment for

African American students and assis+ng in the university’s effort to

support diversity. The ACAAGS banquet plays a central role in

recognizing and celebra+ng the achievements of African American

students and faculty at NC State. The banquet also enhances the

visibility of ACAAGS as a reputable organiza+on on our campus and

in the community.
