Building on the success of the African American Alumnae Network created by alumnae volunteers in 1994, the Black Alumnae Association continues to support the MSMU Black community. The association brings alumnae, students, faculty and staff together to create a powerful network.

The Black Alumnae Association Board of Directors serves as an advisory board working with Alumnae Relations to support the goals of Mount Saint Mary’s University. The Board of Directors provides input and guidance on programs, communications and engagement.
