Black Alumni Council

Black Alumni Council

The Black Alumni Council (BAC) consists of members who represent the broader Black alumni community. These representatives work to increase engagement with the Black alumni community, support the undergraduate experience for Furman’s Black student population, participate in meaningful dialogue with university leadership, and oversee the activities of the Black Alumni Association. The BAC is one of Furman’s premier volunteer leadership groups.

Black Alumni Association

The Black Alumni Association (BAA) is the official affinity group of Furman’s Black alumni community. The BAA, under the leadership of the Black Alumni Council, partners with the Furman Alumni Association and regional FAN Clubs to plan and promote networking opportunities, social events, and reunions for the Black alumni community.
