“I love the saying ‘We Define the Future’ because yes, we do! The choices we make now will make a difference in the long run … I have met so many great staff and faculty who genuinely want me to succeed.”

CSUSB provides resources for black student success such as the Black Faculty, Staff and Student Association, Student African American Brotherhood (SAAB), Student African American Sisterhood (SAAS), Black Student Union (BSU), and Pan-African Center (PAC), all of which cater to the support and success of our students.

In celebration of Black History Month, Cal State San Bernardino is holding virtual events throughout the month of February to honor the culture, accomplishments, contributions and legacy of African Americans. Black History Month is an annual celebration of the achievements and accomplishments made by African Americans within our local, national and global communities. It is a month dedicated to the recognition of individuals who have gone above and beyond and have been memorialized in United States history. It is also a month focused on highlighting key pieces of African American culture in an effort to provide education to future leaders destined to make an impact in the world.
