Alumni/ae of Color Network

Mission Statement
The Alumni/ae of Color Network (AoC) was founded in September of 2019 and formed in order to create a space where alumni of color can build community through networking opportunities. The AoC aims to amplify Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) narratives and find common ground in our shared experiences and humanity. The AoC works in collaboration with the Alumni/ae Programs Office, The Office for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Global Education, and the Administration.

Recent Communications 

September 2021 - Welcome Back letter

May 2021 - Thank you for attending "Centering BIPOC Voices"

March 2021 - Join us for the "Centering BIPOC Voices" on Tuesday, April 13, 1:40-2:20 p.m.
This will be a live, virtually moderated panel with Angela Davis and Nikki Giovanni, an exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from two legendary voices and leaders. This virtual event will be moderated by Milyna Phillips '99 and Avik Sarkar '19. Our intent is to continue uplifting the voices of our BIPOC community in a predominantly white institution and provide a forum to discuss BB&N's journey to becoming an antiracist institution. 

February 2021 - "Thank you to everyone who attended the ‘I Am Black and…’ event we cohosted with BB&N’s Office for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Global Education (DEIG)!
We had a blast celebrating what being Black means to us, playing “Name that Tune”, and exploring the intersectionality that both defines us as individuals and brings us together as a community. We used @polleverywhere to create the collage above, representing parts of our identities that we wanted to share and celebrate with one another. The lucky winners of ‘Name that Tune’ will be receiving a t-shirt with the ‘I Am Black and...” collage thanks to the DEIG Office!"
