The Samford Black Alumni Association, in partnership with Samford University and the Samford University Alumni Association, seeks to create a lifelong and worldwide community of alumni through increased opportunities for engagement between Black alumni and Samford University in the form of fellowship, programs, and services. As a continuation of the Samford University experience, the SBAA strives to foster growth of the individual while encouraging service to Samford University, local communities, and the world.
Examples of the activities of the Samford Black Alumni Association are the African American Alumni and Friends Luncheon and the annual SBAA Homecoming Tailgate.
