Black Alumni Organization (BAO)


The University of Delaware Black Alumni Organization (BAO) exists to support and connect alumni from the University of Delaware black community in conjunction with the UD Alumni Association and the Office of Alumni Relations.

Join the BAO at Homecoming 2016!

The Black Alumni Organization (BAO) is hosting two main events over Homecoming Weekend — a Late Night Happy Hour on Friday and on Saturday, the annual Center for Black Culture/Black Alumni Organization BBQ & Tailgate.
