The African American Studies Program at Iowa State University has developed three student-coordinated support groups: The A Society, which provides a forum for a wide range of issues, The Band of Brothers, which focuses on African American males, and The Circle of Trust, which focuses on African American females. These three groups, open to all students, enrich education by developing closer links between classroom and out-of-classroom experiences. Based on research that shows students' desire for experiences both inside and outside their peer group, these organizations ultimately promote greater student involvement and learning.
