Since 1978 the Black Student Alliance has sought to promote a greater spirit of community at Virginia Tech.


Our Mission

The purpose of the Black Student Alliance at Virginia Tech is to promote a greater understanding of black culture among students, employees, and community members at Virginia Tech. This will occur through the presentation of diverse programs that showcase the educational and artistic contributions of African Americans.
