Black Alumni Advisory Council

Please support future BAAC initiatives

Gifts of all sizes make a direct and immediate impact. Your gift at the Supporter, Advocate, Benefactor and Sponsor levels enables the BAAC to develop opportunities to build and strengthen the alumni network and support student success.   

Promoting social justice, equity, and inclusion among alumni and students

The Montclair State University Black Alumni Advisory Council (BAAC) brings together Montclair State graduates who are of African descent in the Diaspora, connecting them to their alma mater, building and strengthening the network, and engaging them in preparing today’s students for academic and career success. Their inaugural gathering took place during Homecoming 2021, providing an opportunity for alumni to come back to campus to reconnect with the University and with each other. Thank you to those who stopped by the BAAC table at the Alumni Barbecue at Homecoming 2022 on October 29.
