Black Student Initiative

The Black Student Initiative (BSI)

The Black Student Initiative fosters community among the various Black Student groups on campus. In addition to being aware of community needs and communicating those needs to the administration, the Black Student Initiative also maintains a close relationship with Black Alumni (specifically, the Inman Page Black Alumni Council).

BlackBoard Initiative meetings: BSI periodically invites student leaders from the various Black student groups on campus to come together and discuss the potential for collective action.  

ONYX: The Black Student Initiative workers spearhead the ONYX society in order to plan ONYX, the annual rites of passage ceremony that celebrates the transition from Black student to Black Alumni.
