History of African American Studies

The Department of African American Studies at Ohio University was established in 1969. It remains one of a few programs with departmental status in the state of Ohio.

A centerpiece of that legacy is the faculty's shared vision and philosophy with the National Council for Black Studies, which is to promote academic excellence and social responsibility in the areas of teaching, research, and service. The department is committed to producing persons who are capable of solving problems in American (and global) society.
