Sudarkasa, Niara [series]

As associate vice president from 1984 to 1986, Niara Sudarkasa was charged with leading the university's efforts in minority recruitment and retention. Prior to this appointment Sudarkasa had served as director of the Center for Afro-American and African Studies (CAAS) and was a professor of anthropology. She left the university in 1986 to become the first female president of Lincoln University.

Sudarkasa's records comprise 6 linear feet and consist of three subseries: Personal Files, 1983-1986; Topical Files, 1983-1986; and Office of Minority Affairs Files, 1983-1987. Both the Topical Files and the Office of Minority Affairs Files contain extensive material on the topics of minority recruitment, enrollment and retention. The Topical Files also document Sudarkasa's role in the Tenure Issues Liaison Group.
