About CSU Black Rams

Black Rams of Colorado State University is a common interest group as part of Colorado State University’s Alumni Association.  We support the continuous involvement of African-American alumni to their alma mater and create opportunities to become active in the affairs of the alumni association and the university as a whole.

Mission: CSU Black Rams strive to keep African American alumni connected to Colorado State University and each other through a variety of social, cultural, professional, and academic programs while supporting university efforts.

Vision: Our members are dedicated to building and sustaining a beneficial network that connects alumni, current students, and applicants with Colorado State University to increase our visibility at the university and in the African-American community.

Purpose: CSU Black Rams serve African-Americans and other graduates of Colorado State University who identify with African-American heritage by developing a working relationship with university administrators, increasing the role of alumni in the recruitment and retention efforts of African-American students.
