Article I: Name
The name of this organization shall be BLACK SCHOLARS UNITED (BSU).
Article II: Purpose
The purpose of this organization is to promote leadership, higher learning, and education for Black students at Weber State University. BSU was established in 1968 during the Civil Rights era, when many Black citizens were treated in an unjust manner throughout the American system. Originally designed for Black students with the support from Black faculty and staff as a cohesive union to facilitate educational opportunities, promote higher learning levels that could be achieves in the development for the Black culture and implement ways to assist the economic, social and cultural maturity along with other organizations in the community. However, since 1968 Weber State University has become more ethnically diverse as the student populations grow and as a result we believe that Black Scholars United will open its doors to a more diverse community. This mission is to be achieved by sponsoring community service projects and activities that foster harmony and equality in the WSU community and that encourage unity among- -and maximizes the participation of--Black students in order to insure the success of Black Scholars United.
