Student Involvement at the CBC


Under the auspices of the CBC, students serve on committees, participate in campus organizations and help implement CBC programs. Students can enjoy meaningful connections with others through our peer mentoring program Each One Reach One or one of the Black Leadership Council (BLC) groups listed in the directory below. BLC organizations meet monthly to discuss upcoming events and issues impacting the Black community.

Cultural Programming Advisory Board (CPAB)

The Cultural Programming Advisory Board (CPAB), formally known as the Minority Student Programming Advisory Board was founded in 1980 by the CBC. CPAB creates programs and activities that will positively impact the African-American community.

Black Student Union (βSU)

Since 1968, the Black Student Union (BSU) has aimed to represent Black students at the University of Delaware in political matters. The BSU serves as a primary advocate for Black students by taking active measures to improve campus climate.
