Speaking Out

Welcome Ms. Arnold

We write to commend the appointment of Jeanne Arnold as the new Director of the University's African American Resource Center (AARC). As a University alumna, an accomplished administrator, and a talented social worker, she is prepared to do great things at the Center and we are eager to work with her over the years ahead.

The AARC is a vital campus resource that provides a variety of cultural programs, counseling opportunities, advising and support services for African American students, faculty and staff. Under the guidance of Jeanne Arnold, we are confident that the Center will move positively ahead and realize its full potential.

We are grateful for the efforts of the search committee and all University community members that led to this critical appointment. We are also grateful for the fine work of Isabel Sampson-Mapp, who has served as acting director of the AARC for the past year, and Afi Roberson, the Center's talented administrative assistant.
We invite the entire University community to join us in sending best wishes and a warm welcome to Jeanne Arnold.
