The pandemic has led to prolonged social distance, contributing to feelings of isolation and disconnectedness. How can Black folk come together to co-create a community of belonging during this time? 

The Black Excellence Mixer is an annual event that creates space for Black students, faculty and staff to form connections, celebrate successes and build community. On Thursday, January 27, 2022, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., this virtual event will offer:

  • affirming space for participants to share stories and learn from one another
  • opportunity for networking, mentorship and career development
  • invitation to forge meaningful multi-generational relationships across university roles 
  • celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of Black individuals

The Black Excellence Committee is actively committed to nurturing belonging and Black flourishing.

Join us at the third annual Black Excellence Mixer as we rejoice in the power of and within Black community at the university.
