Welcome to African American Student Affairs (AASA),
"a home away from home" for Northwestern's African American student community. Our office provides programs, services, and resources related to student advising, advocacy, outreach, and holistic development. We collaborate with the three other units within Multicultural Student Affairs, H/LSAA/AASA, and the LGBT Resource Center, as well as various departments across campus. Please stop by our house at 1914 Sheridan Rd. to study, take a break, or socialize with friends.
