BGPSA has been founded with the purpose of acknowledging and addressing the concerns and needs of black graduate students. The membership strives to unite as leaders of the African-American/Black community and society through scholarship, social interaction, and service. Our organization is open to all graduate and professional students that wish to meet these ends.

Mission Statement

The Black Graduate & Professional Students Association ("BGPSA") exists to address the unique needs and concerns of minority graduate and professional students, and to promote diversity within the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill community. Through the use of consistent social interaction, multi-cultural programming and programming geared largely towards scholarship, career and community assistance, BGPSA fosters academic achievement, understanding of and respect for differences, and, ultimately, the development of future minority leadership.
