About William T. Small, Jr.

Minority Student Caucus Alumni Network

The Minority Student Caucus consists of all 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 activities to link to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, especially in North Carolina, and to institutions serving other minority groups.
