THIS IS US.
The United Black Student Association, originally UBA (United Black Association), became an active organization on May 19, 2003 (respectively). The organization was started by a talented group of individuals who were dedicated to serving Black students. Taurean Johnson, Nicole Smith Ausmer and Victor Shepherd and Camira Davis set out to create an organization that would make a positive and powerful impact on Black students.
We provide an environment that fosters a sense of Black unity and stimulates Black students. We are not only a programmatic organization, but an activist organization as well, geared towards raising the consciousness of students, faculty, staff and administration at UC from all walks of life. We introduce relevant topics, promote political and social forums, and build leadership skills that will be employed in the ongoing struggle for black liberation.
