Group Social Media


Miami's African-American alumni have organized and conducted focused activities since the mid-1980's under the leadership of the Black Alumni Advisory Committee. The BAAC projects include a quadrennial Black Alumni Reunion within Alumni Weekend, annual Homecoming events, scholarship and awards programs recognizing African-American students, and selected local events.

If you’re interested in helping with the group in any way, please contact Sarah Templeton Wilson at or 513-529-3587.
