Black Student Alliance
History and Mission
BSA was founded in the early 1960's and was recognized in the 1970's to provide a support system for African-American students on the campus of Baldwin Wallace University during a particularly racially tense time in history. BSA was structured to provide cultural and academic support, while educating the campus and community about African-American history and culture.
- To promote cultural education, provide academic and social services and activities that relate to meeting the intellectual and spiritual guidelines of an ever-changing global society
- To emphasize community awareness
- To help establish unity and communication within the African-American community, as well as the Baldwin Wallace University community and surrounding areas
- To provide a liaison between the college administration, faculty and staff concerning specific needs of African-American students
- To support incoming students as they integrate into the campus environment
BSA is dedicated to promoting cultural awareness throughout the Baldwin Wallace community and the surrounding areas. Through a series of activities and events BSA strives to create a fostering environment that encourages social, academic, and professional growth with our minority students. Despite its name, membership is open to all students interested in African-American culture.
