Power of United Vision: United We Stand, Divided We Fall

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to actively make a change for unity by encouraging the principles of scholarship, leadership, and cultural uplift. In addition, BSA is committed to promoting a positive image at Appalachian in the African American community at large.


"Knowledge and action are power, so what am I going to do about it!"

The Black Student Association, which is advised by the Office of Multicultural Student Development, was founded in 1974. It is an organization that addresses the concerns and interests of the African-American student body through cultural programming that promotes cultural awareness. The BSA serves as a support system, surrogate family network and voice for African-American students at Appalachian.
