Celebrating Cal Black Alumni

The University of California, Berkeley Black Alumni Association (Cal BAA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Cal BAA was formerly known as the Black Alumni Club (BAC). Cal BAA is committed to connecting and serving our alumni and students of the University of California, Berkeley.

As part of our rebranding, from BAC to Cal BAA, as an organization we are recommitting to:

  1. Building a tight-knit familial connection between our network of amazing Black Cal Alumni through our initiatives such as: “Building Bridges & Lifting as We Climb.”
  2. Promoting our alumni’s achievements and contributions to the University, as well as the larger Black Community. 
  3. Celebrating the history of Black Alumni at the University and contributions throughout the United States and throughout the World.

Additionally, Cal BAA’s mission includes the recruitment, retention, development, and matriculation of future and existing Black Cal students.

Cal BAA is an alumni group organized under the California Alumni Association(CAA). Our leadership structure consists of an Executive Board of Officers, as well as committees: New Membership, Mentoring Program, Alumni Engagement, Recruitment and Retention, Special Events, Black Graduation and Student Funding/Scholarships.
