Black Alumni

The Black Alumni Drake Community is dedicated to creating opportunities that strengthen alumni and student connections–ranging from activities such as social events to volunteering in the community. Our goal is to continue building a welcoming and supportive Drake community by establishing programming that will connect and engage alumni and students who identify as Black, African, African American, or multi-racial.

BCC Beautification Day
It is time to help make the BCC look beautiful again - but we need your help in doing so. After taking some time to walk through the BCC, we have noticed some areas of improvement to assist in making it feel like home again. We invite you to take part in this day, whether you are local or reside outside of Iowa. If local, please join us to help clean up the space.
