The Black Graduate Student Association seeks to build community amongst incoming, continuing, and past graduate and professional students of African descent across the African diaspora. We also strive to reach out and support other members of the Black community on Washington University in St. Louis campus(es) and in the greater St. Louis area. BGSA’s creation was catalyzed by graduate students’ firm belief in the importance of having an organized and active space for Black graduate students to know each other, support each other, and address the concerns of the Black community both inside and outside of the University. Our efforts are inclusive as we aim to build alliances and partnerships with other organizations across campus. Email BGSA at email@example.com and learn about upcoming events on their WUGO page!
