The purpose/mission of BSA+GSAPP is to support the advancement of students who self-identify as members of the African diaspora, to succeed both academically and socially during their tenure at GSAPP and beyond; enabling them to ultimately become a valuable network resource to current and future students after graduation, as alumni. The goal is to provide a community and source of collegial support mechanisms at GSAPP that actively promote the interest of the black students, alumni, and future students. It is also the aim of the organization to provide a platform for the promotion of scholarship and creativity in writing, architecture, design, real estate, finance, urban planning, historic preservation and the allied arts. The organization will also seek to foster dialog and collaboration among black designers both within and beyond Columbia University.
