The Black Doctoral Network (BDN) is an organization for individuals of African descent who are holders of, or scholars engaged in the pursuit of, undergraduate and advanced degrees from accredited institutions of higher learning worldwide. BDN's goal is to encourage interdisciplinary, which is currently hindered by academic isolation and fragmentation of intellectual resources. BDN continually challenges the persistent negative stereotypes of black achievement, to answer the call for diversity in university and professional organizations, while bridging the gap between academic theory and the real world.
