BLACK STUDENTS UNITED (B.S.U.) is an Umbrella organization for all Cornell University Organizations that predominantly represent students of the African-Diaspora. They aim to support and collaborate with cultural, professional, academic, social, political, service, and performance groups on campus. BSU advocates for the intellectual, human, and systemic needs of African Americans, African, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Latino peoples at Cornell by educating and providing our peers with the essential resources required to ensure a higher success rate for each individual within our community.

Indigenous People's Day
As Indigenous Peoples' Day's inclusion on the official Cornell University calendar is awaiting a final decision, Native American Students at Cornell (NASAC) is hosting an Indigenous Peoples' Day Celebration on Saturday, October 15th, beginning at 5:30 in the Willard Straight Hall Memorial Room. We want to celebrate our diverse cultures while demonstrating university-wide support for official recognition of Indigenous Peoples' Day.
This is an open call to all Native American and Indigenous students and organizations to contribute to the celebration. We're looking for performers, food vendors, art/crafts vendors, and informational or activity tables related to Indigenous cultures. We're hoping to make this a big celebration filled where you can watch performances, buy delicious food, shop, and learn something new about Indigeneity.
If you're interested in contributing or if you want more information, please contact Skye Hart, NASAC's External Relations Chair, at email@example.com.
Please sign up by 9/16.
