Black Alumni, Administrators, Faculty, Students And Staff Organization

The Black Alumni, Administrators, Faculty, Students & Staff Organization (BAAFSSO) arose out of an expressed need for a more comprehensive representation of Blacks at New Jersey City University. Organizational meetings were held in the Fall of 1975 and the following goals were established:

  1. To create a viable vehicle through which the campus's Black community could come together.
  2. To communicate ideas emanating from diverse areas and disciplines.
  3. To act on specific issues to improve the conditions of Blacks on campus.
  4. To eradicate inequities based upon racial and sexual discrimination.
  5. To facilitate networking.



This is to announce that the Call for Nominations for the Black Administrators, Alumni, Faculty, Student, and Staff Organization (BAAFSSO) is open. Officer responsibilities include leading BAAFSSO under its established vision and strategic plan, recruiting and managing members and committees, and assuming responsibility for the completion of current year activities.

We are at a critical junction related to this stellar organization that opened doors for many of us to be here – it’s not time to shy away from exerting the necessary energy to maintain the visibility and vitality of the only organization representing the African Heritage members of the campus community. I sincerely ask you to consider how and where you fit in to ‘Stand Up and Speak Out‘ for our Black Administrators, Alumni, Staff and most importantly our Students.

Nominations open on May 12 and we will vote on May 29 and 30 – electronically and also at stations where you can submit a ballot.


Nominations should be sent to Gloria Boseman ( and/or Brandi Warren (
