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, the Black Student Association is committed to promoting a positive image at Appalachian of 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 Intercultural Student Affairs, 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 a voice for African-American students at Appalachian. BSA meets every Monday at 7:00 pm in MacRae Peak 137bB. Don’t miss the opportunity to come out and see what BSA has to offer. You’ll have fun, get educated, and meet new people all in one meeting. This is one organization that you won’t regret being part of!
