Our Mission Purpose

​The purpose of the UCLA Black Alumni Association (UBAA) is to empower UCLA African American alumni, students, faculty and the community at-large to form powerful associations through advocacy and mobilization that will create greater educational opportunities and resources for the African American community collectively. 

Providing scholarships, advocacy, support and networking opportunities have been just a few of the ways this organization has and continues to support the University and its mission of having the best and brightest students walk the halls of UCLA.
