Welcome to the Black Student Coalition (BSC). A space created through Black student advocacy. A space that supports Black student success. A space that centers the education and celebration of Black identity.  

The BSC was created through the advocacy of our Black students. In 2021, we opened the doors of the BSC, located in Viking Union 504. You can find social spaces to connect with other students, student office space for meetings, and study space. Our BSC Coordinator and student staff are here to help support you in your journey. We encourage you to reach out and stop by the BSC. Check back soon to learn more about our events, resources, and ways we can support you.
