African-American Programs and Services serves as a useful program within the Cross Cultural and Gender Center that provides educational opportunities for students, staff, and faculty alike. Through the facilitation of on-campus programs, the African-American Programs and Services address the unique experiences and social conditions of students of African descent. Additionally, African-American Programs and Services serves as a central space to inquire about resources on Fresno State campus. We are aware that asking the right question, where to go for information, or getting in contact with the right person can be burdensome, so this website is the perfect place to start.
