DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION GROUPS 

Black Student Union

The Black Student Union is a safe space for minorities who are facing injustices, prejudice, and/or discrimination within any system or institution that has been established. This union has been thoughtfully designed as a place away from grievances and other possible overwhelming factors. Our purpose is to provoke change in a greater community for comfort and suitability for all individuals while also teaching the privileged how to be genuine allies.
