Black Student Union

With the increase in racial biased incidents, specifically towards black students on campus, the Black Student Union is working hard to implement real change in the POC experience here at UMass. We will continue to work tirelessly until that goal is accomplished. We thank everyone for their support in light of the recent events that have taken place over the course of September. 

That being said, to all those who have stood in solidarity with us we appreciate you. Many have reached out inquiring about various ways they can show their support. For individuals who have expressed interest in donating to the Black Student Union we are now accepting donations through our UMass Minute Fund. These funds will be used to continue to program, comfort and uplift the BSU community and our allies. The funds received from these incidents will be used in a collective effort with other organizations to continue to support our community. We thank you for your contributions.
