  • Black Student Collective

    The Black Student Collective (BSC), formerly known as PRIDE Black Student Alliance, is an organization that serves as a support system for student members as well as an educational tool for the University and community. Each year, PRIDE sponsors activities and speakers to raise awareness about and celebrate the rich cultural experiences of people of African descent. The Black Student Collective's annual events are Black History Month, Gospel Night, Kwanzaa and the Black Bag Series.

    Established in 1969, the BSC was the first student of color organization that was established here at Hamline University. The original goal of the organization was to focus on promoting racial identity, dignity and equality (hence the name PRDIE). The organization represented and was inclusive of all student of color, as well as white students and international students. The first president of the organization was Richard Jones, a sophomore from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
