Welcome to the Southern Illinois University chapter of the Black Graduate Student Association!

BGSA is a Registered Student Organization at Southern Illinois University Carbondale that was established with the goals of providing a professional, informative and social network for African-American graduate students and assisting with the recruitment and retention of African-American graduate students and other minorities at SIUC. We are also dedicated to promoting educational and cultural enrichment for our membership as well as supporting many programs on the local level that contribute to the general health and welfare of the Carbondale community.
