Black at the Pack:
“We strengthen each other”

While the precise origins of Black at the Pack (often written as #BlackAtThePack) aren’t entirely clear, what is clear is that a formalized group of this kind has been desperately needed on campus. Most involved in the Black faculty affinity group agree that things really kicked off when the newly christened Black Leadership Committee put together the 2019 African Diaspora Graduate Celebration. Things have grown a lot since then, and Black at the Pack is tackling some of the biggest recruitment and retention issues at the University, namely those faced by the Black community.
