I am incredibly proud of and thankful for the opportunity as a non-traditional undergraduate student to earn my Bachelor's degree from within the Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS), founded by the late scholar-activist, Dr. Manning Marable. The depth, rigor and relevance of the Institute’s interdisciplinary curriculum, the expertise and accessibility of the faculty (many professors pioneers in their respective disciplines), and the passion and poise expressed by my fellow peers, each challenged the limits of my perspective and inspired me to engage. Wiithout equivocation, this first-rate liberal-arts education, rooted in building a more just and equitable society, transformed my life and will continue to influence my future endeavors.
