Black Student Union
The Black Student Union (BSU) serves as a forum for communication amongst diverse students and faculty. Through discussions and guest speakers, Black Student Union hopes to involve the community in its efforts to attain respect for cultural diversity and peaceful coexistence, in the interests of Iona students, concentrating on the Black/African-American community.
The purpose of BSU is to serve as a liaison primarily between students of African descent (and other minorities) and the faculty and staff at Iona College. Our aim is to advocate the needs of students in this institution while empowering, teaching, discussing and exploring the Black experience. Through events, discussions and even parties, Black Student Union hopes to engage the community in efforts to promote cultural diversity and peaceful coexistence of multicultural groups at Iona College.
