Biographical/historical note

African-American Student Affairs was established as a department at North Carolina State University in 1984; in 2001, the department was renamed Multicultural Student Affairs after adding Hispanic Student Affairs and Native American Student Affairs units.

Prior to the establishment of the African-American Student Affairs department, a mentor program for African-American freshmen students was created in 1980. The program initially paired freshmen with faculty and staff who served as mentor - after 1981, in accordance with student preference, upper-class peers replaced staff members as mentors. In 1982, this program became known as the Peer Mentor Program, and continues to be run by Multicultural Student Affairs.
