Resources & Services

The African American Resource Center strives to provide students with the resources and training needed to become a successful student at California State University, Fullerton. There are a list of campus and community resources that we find may be useful for undergraduates, graduates, staff, and faculty.

Campus and community Resources 


Our mission is to work in a collaborative partnership with students, a shared responsibility, where the advisor and student are equally invested in the educational process and holistic development of the student.

Academic Advisement is available on a walk-in basis, so come in anytime to meet with an academic advisor. To maximize your valuable time, plan ahead and visit the Academic Advisement Center during non-registration  periods .

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to remove the cost barriers that may prevent you from pursuing your educational goals. Assistance is available from a variety of programs funded by federal, state, university and private sources. Students who demonstrate significant financial need may qualify for grant aid while students with less need may obtain low cost loans. Financial need is determined through a federal formula that assesses the family’s relative financial strength and ability to contribute to meeting the student’s educational costs.

African American Faculty & Staff Association 

Since the late 1960’s, the African American Faculty and Staff Association (AAFSA) has been partnering in the educational enterprise at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF).

AAFSA has evolved over the years and continues to thrive. Our Association offers a community platform for staff, faculty, and students to learn from each other. Our community aims to create faculty and staff networks and connections with students, advocates for employees of African descent, and brings Pan African cultural events and activities to CSUF.

In efforts to help others become a part of our community, there are events and programs hosted throughout the year. It is our goal that our community will become your community.

We are family here, and we hope that you will join us and become a member of the AAFSA community!

African American Studies Department

It is a pleasure to introduce you to the African American Studies website and our degree program at California State University Fullerton. African American Studies is a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the black experience as it relates to life in America as part of a world community. 

In addition to degree programs in African American Studies, the department provides course work in Ethnic Sudies in general (e.g., Intercultural Socialization) and other specific ethnic groups (e.g., American Indian).

Nearly all classes meet general education requirements in the social sciences and are designed to give you the opportunity to learn what "they" never taught you in all your years of schooling. It is increasingly imperative that you acquire knowledge of diverse cultural perspectives. African American courses enhance a student's awareness by drawing multiple points of view. Our courses will expose you to contemporary and cultural viewpoints not offered in other disciplines. They specifically prepare students to appreciate diversity within the broader society.
