The Associationfor the Concerns for African American Graduate Students was created as a student organization at North Carolina State University for all students seeking to address the needs, concerns, and interests of African American graduate students. This organization was recognized by the university in 1976 as the Association for the Concerns of Black Graduate Students. By 1983, it had become the Association for the Concerns of Afro-American Graduate Students and was renamed again in late 1984 or early 1985 as the Association for the Concerns of African-American Graduate Students. The hyphen was subsequently dropped, and the organization officially became the Association for the Concerns of African American Graduate Students.
