Institute for African American Affairs (IAAA)

The IAAA was established in 1969 as a result of protests by Black United Students (BUS). This committee assumes responsibility for assisting collaborative research and program development and implementation, as well as establishing programmatic relationships with various bodies in and surrounding Kent State University.  The IAAA also publishes Kitabu and The African American Affairs Monograph Series, which reports the results of IAAA and related research.
