Our History

The Baylor Black Alumni Alliance began as the Baylor Black Alumni Club, chartered in 1985 by a group of students who wanted to continue their Baylor experience beyond the halls of Pat Neff. We are committed to the same morals and values that Baylor was founded upon. Since 1985, we have been able to award more than $10,000 in academic scholarships to deserving minority students.

Supporting students through scholarships is an important part of our mission. In February 2000, our scholarship fund was named after the first African-American professor at Baylor University, Dr. Vivenne Malone-Mayes; the scholarship was endowed February 7, 2000. Our first scholarship was awarded in April 2001.
