Our Purpose

Formerly known as UCLA Anderson African American Alumni Association

Our purpose is to empower Black alumni to form connections and relationships that enable professional development, advance leadership skills and opportunities, and amplify voices in business.

In addition, we are committed to building a collaborative community that strengthens UCLA Anderson's Black students, alumni, staff, and faculty and positively impacting the broader business community.

Our Priorities

  • Foster connections and activate collaboration across Black alumni to impact the organizations and communities in which we live and work.
  • Enrich the careers of Black alumni through personal and professional development at all stages of their respective life journeys.
  • Elevate and amplify Black voices across UCLA Anderson and the broader business community – students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
