Black Community Council


The USF Black Community Council (BCC) aims to build and maintain a supportive community for black students, staff, faculty, and alumni. We do this by bringing together representatives from all the African American and African-theme and related organizations at USF to develop programs, coordinate efforts, and sponsor events. The BCC also serves as a vital link between Black alumni and the University through collaborative programming with the USF Black Alumni Society.
