The purpose of the BlackStudentUnion (BSU) is to promote activities of common interest, as well as cultural and educational benefits for all student. We participate in charitiable events such as the Step-Out Walk to stop diabetes, which affects African Americans at a rate of 60% higher than Caucasion Americans. We are commited to participating in at least one community service event each semester but we strive for more. We advocate for higher education by introducing our students to colleges and universities. We participate in the HBCU fair held at Phoenix College. We also share information regarding the African American community as well as educate on cultural activities that are unique to the African American community.
