Black Student Union
The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) Black Student Union aims to create a safe space for Black students at CUNY SPS. We have solidified our purpose to promote and integrate positive relationships and access within our community. Our mission is to empower our Black students on campus and provide them with the resources they deserve to have a holistic student experience. All are welcome to mentor and be mentored; all are welcome to build and be built. We honor our Black Community and the multiple intersecting identities we hold.
Being a part of the Black Student Union means that you are ready to learn, engage, and spread awareness on issues affecting the Black community. Our aim is to create a platform for Black students to be able to achieve greatness for years to come.
This space will:
- Present opportunities for folk to engage in the history and context of Black peoples
- Connect and build relationships and networks among students and alumni
- Train and teach us to be active members in matters and decisions around student life and the campus experience
- Offer opportunities to develop personally, spiritually, and professionally
