DuBois-Hamer Institute

Mission Statement:

The DuBois-Hamer Institute for Academic Achievement (DHIAA), under the inspiration of W.E.B. DuBois and Fannie Lou Hamer, promotes academic excellence and strives to increase the recruitment and retention of students from economically disadvantaged communities to the CSUN campus. The mission of the DuBois-Hamer Institute for Academic Achievement (DHIAA) is to promote student success through community and campus partnerships. We will cultivate active and collaborative partnerships with faculty, staff and students across the CSUN campus community; work with local groups and organizations in Los Angeles County; and provide service to cultural and educational institutions in the community.  Research Assistantships are also available on a limited basis.
