We are an organization that recognizes graduation with a Masters or Ph.D. as our #1 priority.
We want to empower our members so that they can properly transfer the usage of the tools acquired at MIT to successfully advance our community.
We wish to provide a place of refuge. A place where African, African American, and Afro-Caribbean graduate students are encouraged to express ideas, concepts, and frustrations without rebuke.
We try to provide opportunities for our membership to relax, relate, and release through healthy entertainment.
In the wake of the national movement that gained momentum in November of 2015, the Black Graduate Student Association prepared a list of recommendations to address racial bias at the Institute. This list still guides what we continue to stand for and work toward at MIT. Read the recommendations.
