PLATTEVILLE - Centering around the annual glittering Ebony Ball, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's Black Student Union (BSU) continues a momentous and enduring tradition to celebrate Black History Month in February.

UWP's BSU will plan activities at a Black History Month kickoff set for 11:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 3, in the University Room of the Pioneer Student Center.

Planned events for February include an open forum, a speaker event, the Ebony Ball and a comedian performance. Information on each event will be released in the near future.

The Black Student Union, under the auspices of the Office of Multicultural Services, organized in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and is UWP's first and oldest campus minority organization.

The Office of Multicultural Services has an impact on each UWP student as the lead office in the diversification of the student body. With cultural programming, outreach and retention services, MCS provides support to African- American, Asian-American, Latino and Native American students at UWP.

Advisors and student organizations work to educate the University community on ethnic issues and diversity.

For further information about Black History Month activities, please call 608-342-1555.
