Black Strategies Group



The mission of the Black Strategies Group (BSG) is to support the academic and professional development of African American faculty, staff, and students. We traditionally use cultural awareness and programs to achieve our mission and to make the larger campus community more aware of the Black contributions to the University of Oregon and to society at large. Membership is open to all UO employees and retirees.


We envision a campus climate and community in which diligent efforts are made to recruit, promote and retain Black faculty, staff and senior leadership in key administrative positions. The BSG wants all Black faculty and staff to have opportunities to achieve their full potential and to have a respected voice within the University-system community.


Please email us for information on meeting times or inquiries.
