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.

The Baylor Black Alumni Alliance Reunion was a successful weekend filled with specially curated festivities and opportunities for us to reconnect with friends and classmates! We are grateful to everyone who came back and joined us on campus this year. We are excited for many weekends like this in the future. It will truly be a fantastic new Baylor tradition!

To commemorate this weekend, please check out the photo gallery which highlights the Awards Ceremony, Worship Reception, Tailgate, and much more! This was such a wonderful time to celebrate the ties that bind us to Baylor.

Scholarship

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.
