African American Legacy Award of Excellence

The African American Legacy Award of Excellence is an acknowledgement of the original African American students who first studied at Columbia College in the early 1970s. These scholars integrated the student body of Columbia College and, throughout their matriculation, laid a foundation of excellence, love and support for all students of color.
