Welcome to The Black Student Union!

BSU in a Nutshell

BSU provides an atmosphere in which students, faculty, and other Willamette members are free to express feelings, concerns, and to engage in critical dialogue to effectively address black issues. BSU also assists with the transition to college for African-American students through creating a comfortable fun environment where students can express themselves and interact with the black community at Willamette University.

The Black Student Union's Mission Statement

The Black Student Union is dedicated to the unification and empowerment of Black Americans, people of African descent, and others who are a part of the African Diaspora. In support of this mission, the BSU will engage in cultural education, strive to achieve self-determination, and instill pride in the Black community at Willamette.
