Black Excellence is a student-led, administratively supported initiative through the Student Diversity and Inclusion Center. Black Excellence serves our black, African, African-American student population on Westminster’s campus and offers events open to all of Westminster’s campus.
This initiative aims to develop racial identity and build community within the Westminster campus. We host meetings, events, workshops, and more where attendees can share in fellowship and participate in intersectional dialogues around topics such as race within higher education, safety, power, privilege, community, and black excellence within and outside of our own Westminster community. Black Excellence seeks to build community through the shared interest and/or identity of blackness.
Black Excellence organizes and holds a variety of events throughout the semester, including, but not limited to, pizza socials, dialogues of race within higher education, invited guest speakers, film screenings, and more.
Black Excellence also participates in and attends Utah’s Expect the Great college readiness conference every fall.
