With a stronger online presence, a greater level of alumni involvement, and an increased number of AAAC programs, events & activities across the country, we will take this organization to the next level!Be Black, Go Blue!
In 1976, a small group of African American alumni decided to organize a reunion of black graduates of the University of Michigan. The idea for the event grew out of recognition that if African American Alumni were to continue to be a part of their alma mater, we would need to return to the University in greater numbers and become active in the affairs of the Alumni Association and the University. This group of committed alumni coordinated an annual event that became known as the Annual All-Class Reunion of Black Graduates of the University of Michigan.
In addition to the annual Reunion, several alumni-inspired initiatives have become an integral part of our involvement. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund was created to assist African American students. African American alumni are actively involved as mentors and in student recruitment programs. Several African American alumni have served and currently sit on the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association. Through these and other efforts, African American alumni are building a tradition of commitment and leadership.
In 1994, we reorganized to become the African American Alumni Council(AAAC). We were then officially incorporated as an affiliate member of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan.
