Introduction

The History of the African American Student Union

The African American Student Union, AASU, originally formed under the name “Georgia Tech Afro- American Association” (GTAAA), was created on April 4, 1968 with the objective of providing support for Black students at Georgia Tech. From its beginning, GTAAA had been extremely active in campus politics and afro-centrism. The fruitful affects of GTAAA are still experienced today through its creation of the Office of Minority Educational Development, OMED, in 1979. Through the office of the provost, OMED provides essential resources such as academic guidance, tutoring, and financial advice to all students at Georgia Tech, but focuses primarily on the needs of minority students. In addition to assisting minority students, OMED also recognizes their outstanding academic achievements at its annual Tower Awards ceremony. Today, OMED is a second home to many AASU members. In 1993, GTAAA revised its name and vision thus becoming the African American Student Union in hopes of creating more opportunities for Black students to express their views and interests.

Vision and Purpose

Standing on its Eight Pillars of Unity, AASU strives to bring to light issues concerning African Americans and challenge students to become more informed, more dynamic members in their community. By promoting its Eight Pillars of Unity: Self-Cultural Awareness, Effective Leadership, Community Service, Scholarship, Coalition Building, Social Awareness, Political Awareness, and Economic Empowerment; AASU hopes to not only enhance each students experience at Georgia Tech, but also provide supplemental knowledge that is just as important as any classroom curriculum.

Mission

The mission of the African American Student Union is to improve the Black experience at Georgia Tech by providing uplifting and entertaining events while exchanging integral knowledge and culture to the entire student body, and to challenge each student to improve themselves through professional, social, and personal achievement, thereby positively impacting the community.

AASU’s Foundation: 8 Pillars of Unity

The African American Student Union adopted the 8 Pillars of Unity as a way to shape and guide its future. Each pillar represents a subject matter that we feel is important and should be emphasized for the betterment of AASU members and our community. Programs and events implemented by AASU fall under these pillars to ensure quality and purpose.

Self Cultural Awareness

AASU provides events and services for the African American community that allows us to come together as a group and learn of our history in order to empower not only ourselves, but more importantly, the community around us. By being better educated of our past, we as African American students can help to uplift and motivate each other and members in our community.

50th Anniversary of the Peaceful Integration of Georgia Tech on January 17,

1961, Georgia Tech became the first university in the Deep South to desegregate without a court order and without bloodshed. Ford Green, Ralph A. Long, Jr. and Lawrence Michael Williams paved the way for the current African American community at Georgia Tech. Bringing together alumni, faculty, and students, AASU plans to commemorate this monumental achievement throughout the year with various events.

The Many Faces of African American Culture consists of the different aspects of

African American culture. From dancing to spoken word, the audience will experience what it is like to be an African American and experience the social side of our culture.

AASU Scrapbook showcases the events of the previous year. Having visual aids to help remember and record past events enables us to grow stronger. Also, visual aids help to provide focal points for improvement for further generations. The scrapbook will keep the future members aware of the types of events and services that the organization is to provide and the quality of each event.

Black Homecoming Week is a week filled with events designed to provide a forum for cultural awareness and to celebrate the presence of people of color on Georgia Tech's campus. Black Homecoming Week is a long-running tradition for AASU, and has established a profound reputation in the Georgia Tech community due to a number of events held in its past.

Black History Taboo is a word guessing game that consists of 2 teams. The object of the game is for one person to describe the word on the card, which will be an African American historical figure, to his/her group without saying the clues on the card. The game is a lot of fun while participants learn more about their cultural history.

Kwanzaa Celebration a weeklong celebration held in the United States honoring universal African heritage and culture. Observed from December 26 to January 1 every year and consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting, culminating in a feast and gift giving. It was first celebrated as an opportunity for African Americans to celebrate themselves and their history. The AASU Kwanzaa celebration will bring this vision to reality to share with the Tech community.

Trivia Night at Junior’s Grill how well do you really know your Black History? The Annual Trivia Night will be held at Georgia Tech’s historical Junior’s Grill where students will be quizzed on facts regarding African American culture past and present.

Blackout an annual event in which members of all Black Student Organizations on campus wear Black to signify the presence of African Americans at Georgia Tech and participate in a public demonstration focused at the symbolic center of the campus, the Campanile.

Women’s Health Awareness Month a month long event with the focus of increasing awareness of physical and mental health in the Tech community. There will be a range of events occurring weekly including programs focusing on fitness through dance, hair and make-up seminars, and a forum discussing the truth about diseases that affect communities very close to us. Through collaboration with other student organizations, this month has the potential to have an impact on a huge part of the Tech community.

Effective Leadership

In order to help prepare for the ever changing demands of the future, AASU works to create opportunities for our members to interact with corporate sponsors, alumni, and faculty. Doing so increases supplemental leadership skills that can only be found in the real world.

Black Leadership Conference approaching its 8 th year anniversary, the Georgia Tech Black Leadership Conference (BLC) is an annual event hosted by the African American Student Union (AASU) that promotes leadership and diversity in professional and community life. Since its commencement in 2004, the BLC has served a vital role in educating, exciting and motivating its participants to have a positive and lasting impact within their communities. For three days, the conference will reach out to African American individuals, not only within the Georgia Tech community, but also in the greater Atlanta area.

Community Service

As college students, it is important that we are aware of the happenings in our community and be devoted to bringing about change and giving back. AASU hopes to be a catalyst for change both on Georgia Tech’s campus and in the metro-Atlanta area.

SAT Prep an AASU program that consists of 9 sessions held over the course of each semester. The target group for this program is high school students in grades 10-12 to increase the performance of historically under-performing students. This year we are trying to expand the program to include college trips to a range of universities. The goal of the trips is to introduce students to different types of college communities and create enthusiasm among the students. The overarching goal for SAT Prep is to allow AASU to reach out into the community and stimulate interest in scholarship and higher education.

Relay for Life a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay for Life, teams of people camp out at a Georgia Tech and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event and aims to raise money towards this great cause by fundraising through participation, grants, and sponsorships.

Scholarship

AASU looks to strengthen the African American community by encouraging them to excel in the classrooms. One of the most rewarding accomplishments a person can have is attaining high scholastic standards and AASU strives daily to facilitate the growth of our members academically.

Tunnel Vision is designed to enlighten the freshman members about the myriad mentoring opportunities available on Georgia Tech's campus, and to emphasize certain statistics about African American retention with personal vignettes and testimonials from upperclassmen. Our aim is to teach students to avoid Tunnel Vision, and to ensure that their focus includes all of the resources that are available to them as a "customer" of Georgia Tech.

Tribute to the Legends Ball recognizes and celebrates outstanding Blacks who have made a lasting impression on Georgia Tech and in their community. By interacting with individuals who were once in their shoes, we hope to inspire our members to find their niche and make an impact. In addition, it is an opportunity for us to learn from those who helped shape the African American community on Tech’s campus and learn how best to prepare for its future.

order to ensure its continued success at Georgia Tech.

Coalition Building

For any organization to grow and be successful, it is important that it is able to come together as one in order to achieve common goals. AASU plans to no not only focus on cohesion within the organization but also on forming partnerships with other organizations on campus.

General Meetings serve both as a social and professional outlet for minorities here at Georgia Tech. Weekly meetings range from formal to informal settings and cover a plethora of activities such as casual, open floor discussions about current issues, fitness days at the Campus Recreation Center, guest speakers from local companies, and annual events such as the Battle of the Sexes.

AASU Welcoming Party with one of the largest minority freshman classes in recent history, 2010-2011 promises to be an exciting year for AASU members, both new and old. This

event serves the purpose of strengthening the ties between the Black Student Organizations at the commencement of the school year, and welcoming freshman students into Georgia Tech.

Water Fight is intended to be AASU's opening splash for the new academic year. Through partnership with multiple campus organizations, we hope to attract the largest number of students in the organization's history. We believe that this event will kick-start the new year in a fun, refreshing manner and aid in member retention.

Midnight Volleyball is annual staple of AASU recreation that provides a much-needed break from the monotony and stress of most students' school schedule. By partnering with an Inter-Fraternity Council organization, we hope to attract a more diverse crowd than this event has typically seen.

Tech Rec Bowling Night provides an opportunity for AASU members to get together and enjoy themselves in friendly competition, providing relief from the tasking agenda that many of its students face daily. We hope to collaborate with a school club or organization representing a different culture or ethnic group, as a way to diversify the AASU experience.

Social Awareness

This pillar places an emphasis on the social issues facing our community on a daily basis. We hope to bring these issues to light in a manner that stirs our members to stay informed and move to change the status quo.

1250 March partnering with other Black Student Organizations on campus, AASU participates in this event as an expression of pride and unity and to represent its voice and let the Georgia Tech community know that African American’s on campus are alive and well.

Black Amazing Race references the hit TV show, the Amazing Race.

Cars will be driving to

Onyx Ball Every year, the African American Student Union finishes Black History Month by hosting the Onyx Ball where Georgia Tech students and their guests come dressed to impress to celebrate the accomplishments of African Americans throughout history.

Hueman Press producing the Hueman Press and distributing copies to the community is vital because it is one of the many ways that AASU provides social enlightenment and connection between students on Georgia Tech's campus. Current events, expression, coalition building, and more can be found within the pages of this newsletter. The Hueman Press serves as written documentation of our world as we see it today, and as we see it for the betterment of our tomorrow.

"Bring the Noize" Arts Contest a campus-wide spoken word, poetry, song & dance competition designed to increase social awareness about worldwide issues affecting underrepresented people/people of color. Monetary prize awarded.

Movie Night events entail the screening of a culturally relevant movie emphasizing social and self-cultural awareness.

Political Awareness

With the vast majority of our membership of voting age, it is important that we as an organization stay current in government affairs. From the local to the international level, policies made by elected official’s effect our future and we strive to stay informed so that we can make informed, educated decisions.

Black Conscious Summit brings together the Georgia Tech Black community as well as other Black students in the Greater Atlanta area to discuss essential issues in the community. Gathering in forum style discussions, the Black Conscious Summit sparks intriguing dialogue and promotes social change through exchanging ideas, opinions, and solutions for major issues and current events.

My President Said created with the purpose of educating the AASU membership about relevant political issues in the world media specifically highlighting those that stem from the election of the first Black President, Barack Obama. Because interest in political affairs has died down since the conclusion of the election in 2009, our aim is to recapture interest in the political sphere.

Economic Empowerment

AASU wishes to equip members with the tools and knowledge necessary to make sound financial decisions. Learning to manage personal finances and to become more informed on today’s economy are skills that will benefit members well beyond their time at Georgia Tech.

It’s YOUR Money a presentation-style event discussing college students' finances accenting case-specific situations and presenting options for better financial management. Financial struggles are a common feature of college life for many students, and taking the correct steps early in your career can help avoid troubles later in life.
