The Campbell Hall Black Alumni Collective (CHBAC) was established in 2019 with the mission of fostering a sense of community that allows Black students to achieve their full potential throughout their tenure at Campbell Hall while also continuing the connection among Black alumni to their alma mater.
CHBAC hosted their first panel event on February 27, 2020 for students, parents, parents of alumni, and alumni to connect, share, and network.
Over the summer of 2020, CHBAC hosted age-specific informal virtual sessions in which students and families could freely share experiences as well as openly discuss current events and topics of racial justice within our communities and our broader society.
