African American Alumni Council
The African American Alumni Council promotes core values of excellence, relationships, learning, diversity, traditions, and advocacy through its ongoing engagement of African American alumni. Our mission is to support the community of alumni of African descent, to strengthen their connection to the University of Pittsburgh and to promote the recruitment and retention of African American students, faculty, staff and administrators.

There are several dates of importance that should be marked on your calendar:
The Send-Off events are annual gatherings held around the country for incoming freshman from major metropolitan areas. I encourage you to participate in them and welcome incoming students to our alma mater. The AAAC Affiliates have special events specifically geared for African American students and parents. Please check the AAAC website for listings in your city.
Homecoming is an important weekend in the life of our university and it offers a tremendous opportunity for alumni to return home and reconnect with friends and college mates not seen in some time. The AAAC annual membership meeting is held during homecoming weekend and we invite you to join us, meet your leadership team and get connected.
Thanks to everyone that attended our Distinguished Alumni Reception. A gallery of photos from the event can be found below.
