  At the Minority Student Caucus alumni reunion

The Minority Student Caucus consists of students of color in the School who wish to join. The Caucus was founded in the early 1970's as a vehicle for bringing the concerns of minority students to the attention of the School's Administration and for working to attract more students of color to the School. The Caucus founded Minority Health Conference in 1977 and has conducted it annually since then. The Caucus also works with the School administration on initiatives to link to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, especially in North Carolina, and to institutions serving other minority groups.

Leadership

The Minority Student Caucus is led by an Executive Board elected annually by all Caucus members. Officers - Co-Presidents, Secretary, and Treasurer - and other E-Board members serve one-year terms.

For its first quarter century, the Caucus received support and advice from William T. Small, Jr. (the Caucus actually played a role in Dean Small's coming to the School as a minority student recruiter in 1971). Following Dean Small's retirement in 1999, Aundra Shields became Assistant Dean for Students and worked with the Caucus. Felicia Mebane and Charletta Sims-Evans, Victor Schoenbach, Chandra Caldwell.[years?]
