Support Underrepresented Students

The Black Alumni Network continues to grow and provide alumni another opportunity to support a lasting legacy! Many individuals paved a pathway of success for future students, starting with Mary Ford Holland, ’61, the first African American student to enroll. Black Alumni gather to celebrate the trailblazers every five years during Homecoming with the next celebration planned for Homecoming 2021. Consider a gift today in support of Multicultural initiatives and student scholarships!
