Our Story

We're EVERYWHERE you want to be - connecting, communicating, and educating!

The BAC has worked to turn a shared vision into an organization dedicated to bringing alumni together and creating a link with the university. The BAC has evolved from a small group of alumni and faculty into a formal alumni chapter with an energetic leadership.

In January 2003, the BAC became a formal alumni chapter of George Mason University. At that point, the organization established a governing structure and began mapping a plan for how the BAC could serve alumni. We have adopted the following working mission statement:

The BAC, a formal alumni chapter of George Mason University's Alumni Association, brings together alumni through fellowship and professional development activities.

The BAC is a resource for alumni to forge lasting relationships, identify professional development opportunities, and match alumni resources with current Black students and organizations; as well as support the university’s growing network of alumni who give back.
