African American Student Leadership Institute (AASLI)


Started in 2002, African American Student Leadership Institute (AASLI) is a semester long program for sophomores meeting cultural balancing needs from the social, historical, racial, self concept, and integration contexts. Through collaboration between the National Pan?Hellenic Council (NPHC), Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life (OFSL), and Department of Multicultural Services (DMS). AASLI offers developmental education and experimental learning aiding students in becoming knowledgeable and well-rounded leaders who model community involvement, effective problem solving abilities, personal accountability, and social consciousness.


A class of AASLI consists of a maximum of 30 first semester sophomore students, a Coordinating Board of students, including Student Administrators and Student Coordinators. AASLI was designed for students who have a genuine interest in Black/African American identity development.  Students must have been selected as a participant in their freshman year in order to pursue future leadership roles with AASLI.  Classes are guided and advised by two professional staff in the Department of Multicultural Services and Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.
