BHC 2020. Reclaiming our Renaissance: Our history, our legacy, our culture.

Black Community

The Black community at the George Washington University (GW) is a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff, who represent a variety of backgrounds and experiences unified under the goal of cultural awareness. Currently, Black student enrollment is 6.5% at the undergraduate level and 10% at the graduate level at GW.

With 22 student organizations promoting the values and traditions of African-American, Caribbean, African and Afro-Latino cultures, Black programs include culture shows, distinguished guest lectures and other educational events.

Throughout the month of February, GW celebrates Black heritage showcasing the rich history, culture and accomplishments of the Black community. The Multicultural Student Services Center provides logistical support for Black organizations to collaborate and promote cultural awareness.
