The Black Student Union serves the purpose of organizing to represent the interests of the Black undergraduate students at Lander University. We are primarily an organization that communicates the needs and concerns of Black Students to the administration and general university community, as well as to provide the university with programming and information relevant to the Black experience to raise cultural awareness and promote cultural diversity. We will work among ourselves and with other organizations at Lander University to develop programs in the interest of Black students. We aim to enrich student life at the university culturally, intellectually, and socially; to ensure full ongoing administrative commitment to fair and equitable policies; and to strengthen and support the bonds of community between Black Lander students and the Greenwood County community.
