A Letter from the 2017-2018 Co-Presidents and Vice President

On behalf of Black Student Forum (BSF), we would like to welcome you to our profile. Established in 1970, Black Student Forum is Boston College's premier cultural organization. Providing an innovative platform that encourages the cultural, intellectual, political, and social growth and diversity of the Boston College student body as a whole. BSF challenges the Boston College community to experience the many elements that collectively create the Black experience.

During the 2016-2017 academic year, the main goal of our organization is to continue to build on the legacy that BSF has gained and placed over its more than four decades of existence at Boston College. In honor of our 45th year at Boston College, we want to promote and share the values of Black Student Forum with the Boston College and greater Boston community. Through our programming and coordinated events, we plan to entail the social and political platforms of creating safe spaces for Black students and their allies on campus. As the year continues on, the goal is to see growth and stability through the networks and connections formed new ones and those prior existing. By upholding our organization to high expectations of welcoming and positive messages to all who participate, we are maintaining the legacy of diversity, good hospitality, and powerful connections that our leaders have before us.

With commitment, creativity and compassion, we will work diligently to be the voice and help fulfill the needs of the black student body as a whole. We invite you to attend our events and express your comments and concerns throughout the year.
