Welcome to the BGSA BSync Page!

The Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA) was founded in 1993.  The mission of the BGSA at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is to support the successful retention and matriculation of graduate students of African descent, foster a sense of community, and promote professional development, mentoring, and social awareness.

In an effort to make our members’ time here at UAB more enjoyable, we sponsor social events, pertinent forums dedicated to issues of interest in the Black community at UAB, community service opportunities, an annual celebration of the achievements of our members and much more! Come and see for yourself at our next general body meeting.
