Black Student Union


The purpose of the Black Student Union is to reduce the fragmentation of the Black Community by promoting Black culture, unity, and equality across the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. Our vision is a campus community wherein Black Students are empowered and are aware of how one another as students, faculty, staff, and administration, exist on campus.

Diversity and Inclusion

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, diversity and inclusion are central to our mission and pursuit of excellence. Each person has something to gain from and offer to our community of learning, discovery, and outreach. more...


Since Fall 2018, the 14 Black Student leaders assessed the issues the community was facing and dedicated themselves to finding solutions and alleviating these concerns. Consequently, the Black Student Union was established to serve as a voice for the issues and concerns of Black students through educational, political, community service, and social programs. The Black Student Union works to promote cooperation and understanding within the Black community to encourage a sense of unity amongst the various organizations important to that community.
