About Us

On Oct. 24-25, 2008, we held our first ever Black Alumni Reunion during NSU's Homecoming. Organized by Nicole Gray, along with Carlos Treadway, Ted Honeycutt, and John Tappan, this historical event served as the foundation for establishing the NSU Black Alumni Alliance, which was officially organized on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009. We gained the support and interest of alumni from coast to coast, as well as the community at large. We are well under way with the development of programs that support our mission statement. With the help of the NSU Alumni Office of Development, we have proudly established the NSU BAA Endowed Scholarship, where you can donate here.


The NSU BAA strives to serve our local communities nationwide, connect with current NSU students of color, form lasting bonds with fellow alumni and provide a link between these alumni, students and the University. We invite you to join the NSU BAA and help us make a difference!
