Who We Are
The African American Outreach Initiative is facilitated by of a group of dedicated faculty, staff and administrators from
across the district who are concerned with the access and success of African American students in the Los Angeles
Community College District.
The initiative began as a directive from former Chancellor Rocky Young and was carried forth by past chancellor, Dr. Tyree Wieder and maintained by vice chancellor, Yasmin Delahoussaye. The group meets to explore ways to improve outreach to the African American community, collaborate with the California State University “Super Sunday” event, explore support programs for African American students, develop and maintain a network of community contacts, renew and expand HBCU articulation agreements, and engage the district through conferences and activities.
