Black Scholars and Professionals

Black Scholars and Professionals (BSAP)

Our vision is to see graduate students, professional students, and faculty of African or African American descent transformed by Christ, renewed in their academic pursuits or professional lives, and serving as agents of change within the African American and African community, the church, and the world through:
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Ethnic Integrity
  • Church Participation
  • Urban and Global Projects
  • Work and Faith Integration
  • Reconciliation in the African Diaspora
  • Collaboration with Professional Associations


From my early academic years as a freshman through the new challenges as a tenured faculty member, I have really seen God's grace poured out in my life through Black Scholars and Professionals. BSAP gives me the strength to keep getting up!

BSAP is helping Black students and faculty realize their full potential as disciples of Jesus Christ. We're challenging them to place their academic and professional training at the service of God's kingdom.
