The Black/African American Program Coordinator serves UNLV’s Afrodescendant student population. They are responsible for creating programs, facilitating workshops, and providing resources with the goal of affirming, educating, and empowering students. The Coordinator also addresses the needs of Afrodescendent students through collaborative advocacy, coalition building, and explicitly communicating the barriers deterring Afrodescendant students from personal, professional, and academic success.
