Black Graduation

Bridging our past with our present, the Black Graduation serves as a traditional rite of passage that recognizes and affirms students of African descent who have completed a rigorous journey through academia at the University of Southern California.

Black Alumni Association

The primary objective of the BAA is to enable the most ethnically diverse and inclusive experience for USC students, alumni and supporters through leadership, networking and shared values—and to honor the rich legacy, contributions and participation of Black Trojans in the university and alumni communities.
