The Auburn University Black Graduate and Professional Student Association is a chapter of the National Black Graduate Student Association (NBGSA) which was founded at Howard University in 1989. On Auburn’s campus, we are under the Multicultural Affairs Office with the goal of becoming a prominent organization for the needs of African-American students.
The Auburn University Black Graduate and Professional Association is an academic and professional organization that exists to address the unique needs and concerns of minority graduate and professional students, and to promote diversity within the Auburn community. The mission of the Auburn University Black Graduate and Professional Association is to advance the scholarly activity of minority students and to improve the conditions of the social environment.
Through the use of consistent social interaction and multi-cultural programming geared largely towards scholarship, career and community assistance, the Black Graduate and Professional Association fosters academic achievement, understanding of and respect for differences, and, ultimately, the development of future minority leadership.
