Black and African Diasporic

Every February, the Center for Culture, Equity and Empowerment (CCEE) sponsors a campus-wide Black Heritage Month (BHM) to highlight and celebrate the various Black/African Heritage cultures on campus, history and their contributions to the world. Events are sponsored by student organizations, academic departments and a number of offices within University Life.

We serve as the primary support system for all George Mason students who identify themselves as African, Black, African-American or being of any national/ethnic heritage within the continent of Africa or within the African Diaspora. We engage Black/African heritage students through individual advising, services, and programs that foster an inclusive community, intellectual exploration and holistic development.

By working with our office and utilizing the resources, we hope students will have an enriched collegiate experience that will enable personal and professional development.

GMU Black Alumni Chapter – From their homepage: “The Black Alumni Chapter, a formal alumni chapter of George Mason University, brings together Black Alumni through fellowship and professional development activities. Founded in 2003, the BAC serves as a resource for linking Black Alumni with unique opportunities to support the University’s Black/African Heritage students, faculty, organizations, and the Mason community.”
