Opportunities to Make a Difference

PAN Awards 
PAN seeks your nominations for professionals, institutions, and initiatives that advance dialogue on Pan African issues on college campuses. Please visit our PAN Awards link or Facebook page for more information.
 
ACPA Commission/Committee Program
Each year, PAN solicits the assistance of the PAN General Membership to represent PAN at other Commission and Committee meetings and events during the ACPA Convention.  If you are motivated, enthusiastic, and committed to PAN, but don’t necessarily have the time to serve in an official capacity on the PAN Directorate, this opportunity may be for you!
 
Planning for ACPA Convention
Join the PAN Directorate in planning discussions, meet-ups, and socials at ACPA 2015 in Tampa! For an updated listing of regional socials, be sure to visit the PAN Facebook page frequently.
 
Social Justice, Equity, & Current Events Task Force
PAN has an extensive history for being an activist and service-oriented group within ACPA.  As we continue to engage in dialogue surrounding current events and their influences on individuals of Pan African descent on college campuses, we invite you to consider joining our Research & Scholarship ad hoc task force on Social Justice, Equity, and Current Events.  In addition to writing position papers and scholarly articles, this group is responsible for developing attainable, cutting-edge solutions to complex issues in the academe.
 
Additional Pan African Initiatives
If you have other ideas for how to support students and professionals of PAN African descent, or if you would like to contribute additional resources, please feel free to contact us!
