Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA)
ABOUT OUR STUDENT ORGANIZATION
Greetings from the Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA). The purpose of BGSA is to meet the professional, social, and academic needs of Black graduate students. Our organization recognizes graduation with Masters or Ph.D. as a top priority. Subsequently, this organization is dedicated to the promotion of academic excellence, mentoring, professional guidance, and social support that will enhance the scholarship of Black graduate students at Kent State University. Most importantly, we plan to use these tools to empower our community and assist with opening the doors to higher education to more individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds. We also wish to provide a place of refuge where Black students are encouraged to share ideas, concepts, and frustrations. Finally, we aim to provide social opportunities for members to relax and relate through recreational and scholarly entertainment.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments or concerns.
