The Black Professional Alliance is an organization that connects and grows Wagner’s Black community as students, graduates, and professionals. Through the BPA, members will gain access to personal and professional development opportunities while receiving exclusive invitations to enrichment experiences, both in person and via virtual platforms. Experiences will include, but are not limited to: networking, mentoring, sponsorship, philanthropy and community outreach. It is through the BPA’s mission that both students and alumni will continue to foster mutually beneficial relationships while supporting Wagner College’s mission to promote diversity, inclusion and equity.
The Black Professional Alliance (BPA) is the postgraduate branch of the student organization, Black Student Union (BSU).
History: BSU was formerly known as NSU (Nubian Student Union)

Alumni and students joined us for our Black Professional Alliance and Black Student Union Social. We heard inspirational stories from four speakers: Philip Georges '83, Jocelyn Ford '08, Jarrid Williams '15, and Charnae Payne '21. Each shared their journey, keys to success, and the lessons they learned along the way.
