2.Develop unity among all while providing an enjoyable and memorable experience.
3.Provide leadership opportunities to students on the CSU East Bay campus.
By partaking in community outreach, social networking events, educational events, and fundraising events as well as holding weekly meetings for discussion of issues within the Black community our student leaders will ensure that every student is effected in a positive way. BSU members welcome all students to come and participate in the historical and present achievements in the African American/Black culture.
