  • Creating local chapters in every city that contains a critical mass of Black alumni;

  • Establishing engaging programs for the social and professional benefit of its alumni;

  • Building deep and lasting relationships between Black alumni;

  • Fostering meaningful ties with students to attract, support, develop and empower the next generation of Black alumni;

  • Structuring consistent communication with alumni and campus stakeholders to highlight noteworthy achievements and events;

  • Facilitating the expansion of financial and intellectual giving from Black alumni for the betterment of the University.
