Office of Black Student Services
Committed to the holistic development of the African-American student, the Office of Black Student Services (OBSS) strives to foster a family oriented community where trust, respect and love drive the quest for the magis. Since 1969, OBSS has worked in collaboration with the division of academic affairs to ensure comprehensive support, engagement and retention of students from orientation to graduation.
