Established on July 20, 2013, the Black Alumni of Guilford College Advisory Board (BAGCAB) is an officially sanctioned advisor to the College, operating in partnership with the Guilford College Alumni Association Board (GCAAB).
Our mission is to engage the Black Alumni in supporting the academic and social experience of students, advocating for the leadership and inclusion of administrators, and promoting lifelong tradition, pride and loyalty among alumni.
The vision is to create an empowered collegiate experience for students, expand the impact of administrative initiatives, and support the post-graduate endeavors of alumni by engaging the Black Alumni of Guilford College in a lifelong commitment to participation, leadership, service and celebration of culture and friendship through:
Facilitate professional and social networking opportunities for Black alumni, students, faculty, and staff.
Collaborate with Guilford College in the recruitment and retention of students, and partnering with alumni.
Support initiatives that raise funds to enhance the development of Black Students and alumni.
Preserve Guilford's Black history and Black History at Guilford, with the recognition of Black alumni and student achievement.
Hold Guilford College accountable for providing an equitable, anti-racist, multicultural, and culturally relevant environment.
We thank the office of the President, GCAAB, Multicultural Education Department (MED) and the Office of Alumni Relations, along with the Black Alumni who started, steered and fought over the years for this voice.
