Black Alumni Weekends and Reunions: A Review of BAW Among Colleges and Universities

Posted on June 11, 2017

In this report Corporate Insight compiled information about Black Alumni Weekends (BAW) at colleges and universities. This report focuses on how other schools approach planning, promoting and executing their BAW. Specifically, we look at what other schools’ BAW entail, including a schedule of events and BAW promotion.

We reviewed the alumni websites and outreach methods that we track on a daily basis for Alumni Monitor, and selected four examples of Black Alumni Weekends and Black Alumni Reunions. Common techniques that schools are using (or had used in the past) include dedicated social media pages as well as specific pages or sections that house all BAW or reunion details, and are accessible from the alumni website.
