About us

The UC San Diego Black Staff Association (BSA) serves as an advocate for progress through the promotion of critical dialogue, upward mobility, networking, and programs that elevate the rich Black culture of our ancestors.

Our organization places particular emphasis on equity, diversity, and inclusion goals with evidence-based recommendations to University leadership that voice and advance issues affecting the Black staff experience. To that end, we also create safe spaces to identify and discuss the challenges of anti-blackness in the workplace.

We invite you to explore membership and share your ideas on how we can achieve these goals as a unified voice through programming and other opportunities. With us, you are seen, heard, and supported. Your voice is needed to help us enhance a culture of "oneness' for all.

At every opportunity, we uplift and celebrate black excellence.
