> School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education.  In December

> developing a curriculum.  The initial program for Afro-American  
> Studies passed the HSSE Senate in the spring of 1971.  In December  
> 1974, the name was changed to Africana Studies and Research Center.   
> Thus Purdue University's AASRC has been in existence for more than  
> 40 years, which presents an ideal opportunity to look back over the  
> discipline while also looking forward to impending developments in  
> the field.
