Our organization is dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence, community service, mentoring, and social awareness with respect to minority graduate students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

We sponsor monthly events that include:

  • Social events and forums dedicated to issues of interest
  • Professional development seminars
  • Mentoring undergraduate students through our BLUEprint Connect Program
  • Our annual Minority Achievement Gala
  • And much more!

In the month of April, we have two events. We have a book drive to help promote literacy in our local elementary schools and we have our annual Minority Achievement Gala. Please see flyers below.
