Vision & Purpose

Read more about our Vision & Purpose at BSA.

This is who we are.  This is what we do.  This is how we do it.


We envision a community that provides support, nourishment, strategic engagement, and inspiration to enhance the Black experience at UC San Diego.


Our chief purpose is to promote unity through advocacy for Black staff and enhance cultural understanding across UC San Diego. We believe the strength and well-being of our constituency creates capacity for strategic engagement and thought leadership within our institution and greater San Diego community.

We envision a workplace

  • Where we are able to bring our authentic selves.
  • We are supported, validated, and have a sense of belonging that builds a cohesive campus community.
  • Where there are equitable opportunities for career development and advancement.
  • We are able to hold the University accountable for ensuring equity and diversity are at the forefront of inclusive policy making.
  • We foster inclusion and community building through a support network of mentors, allies, and peers.
  • We create an enlightened environment where issues of inequity and injustice can be effectively identified, directly challenged, and intelligently discussed

This is who we are.  This is what we do.  This is how we do it.
