Black Awareness Coordinating Committee (BACC) Celebrating 50th Anniversary
BACC is an organization that was established in 1969 and built on a rich history of achievement, pride, and unity. It began as a way for minority students to unify and build a strong voice for the African American student when very few acknowledged what they felt or had to say. Today, the fundamental purpose of the BACC is to improve the overall image, mindset, and college experience of the Black student at Rochester Institute of Technology. BACC will accomplish this by providing events, and working with like-minded clubs and individuals, that promote academic success, cultural and social consciousness, and community service.
Most recently, BACC organized RIT’s first student-driven Black Graduation Ceremony in May 2019. Take a moment to learn more about how BACC has continued to move this organization forward in the RIT University Magazine.
There are several events scheduled during Brick City Homecoming to celebrate the 50th Anniversary. Kicking off the events is the Gala at the Harro East Theatre & Ballroom on Thursday, October 17th.
