The University of Alabama at Birmingham Black Student Awareness Committee (BSAC) prides itself on enhancing the UAB collegiate experience through the promotion of educational events and programs that expose the true diversity of the black culture to the UAB campus and community. In addition to funding year round programming designed to fulfill this purpose, BSAC typically also coordinates the Black History Month events at UAB to celebrate the heritage, commemorate the accomplishments, and offer insight into the future of Black America.

Ranked 5th in the nation in the Diverse Student Population category of the Princeton Review, UAB’s 17,000+ students represent a multitude of ethnicities, religious backgrounds, and countries.  The Black Student Awareness Committee encourages and welcomes all students to get involved and make a difference through cultural education, empowerment and understanding.

Our goal is simple: to increase the awareness and appreciation of black history, culture, and people. BSAC also functions as a channel to communicate information to various other cultural entities within the UAB campus and surrounding community. We emphasize the promotion and support of African-American student organizations at the university, as well as the development of outstanding black student leaders. BSAC is a part of the University Programs Council and operates primarily out of the Hill University Center Office 136.
