Welcome to the African-American Resource Center's (AARC's) homepage.

We are a resource center dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Pennsylvania with a particular focus on those of African descent. Any person associated with the university may use our free and confidential services as needed.

Our services include advocacy, counseling, information & referral, workshops and informational sessions, and many advertised events throughout the year. You may also email us at aarc@pobox.upenn.edu to inquire about our services and the wonderful programs we offer. Please view our website to learn more about our staff, enjoy our photo gallery, and find out about related centers and resource centers with whom we collaborate.

AARC provides services to all

The AARC would like to extend a special thank you to Jackie Eschbach for her tireless work on the re-design of the AARC, MLK, and WOCAP websites.
