Eastern Connecticut State University students, faculty and staff, area residents and public officials packed the Paul E. Johnson Sr. Community Conference Room last month when Eastern hosted the monthly meeting of the State of Connecticut African-American Affairs Commission (AAAC).

President Elsa Núñez greeted the commissioners. AAAC Executive Director Glen Cassis and Sociology Professor Dennis Canterbury, who is a Commission member, presented the audience with an overview of the commission, describing its origin, statute, mission, legislative priorities, accomplishments, statistical data and issues of interest.

 

The audience asked questions about education, criminal justice, health, affordability of higher education, racial profiling and President Obama's My Brother's Keeper Initiative. Fred Pierre-Louis, the commission's chairman and Subira Gordon, the commission's legislative analyst, shared information on resources for students to use to gain access to higher education and ways to help pay for it.
