BFSG mission:

  • strengthen the relationships among Black people within the Skidmore College community
  • foster a sense of community and mutual support through social gatherings, networking, mentoring, and coalition building
  • support professional development
  • outreach to student groups
  • provide a visible campus presence
  • support the administration's recruitment and retention efforts
  • educate and engage with the community on issues related to race, the Black experience, and anti-racism
  • develop the relationship between Skidmore and Saratoga Springs' Black community members
