Letter from the President
Greetings on behalf of the Northeast Region of the National Council on Black American Affairs (NCBAA-NE). It is an honor to serve as president of this amazing region during this time of growth and transition. As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, NCBAA-NE remains committed to increasing awareness of the critical issues facing black students and professionals in higher education. We continue to work diligently and collaboratively to ensure that our voice is heard as policies that impact our professional goals and our student’s success are created.
The Northeast Region is comprised of 12 states and two U.S. territories (Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virgin Island).
This is a pivotal moment for our country. One thing that this past year has taught us, is that the work of NCBAA is needed more than ever. I encourage you to join us in our mission to improve the outcomes for black students, faculty, staff and administrators. As a member of the NCBAA-NE, you will grow both personally and professionally as you network with some of the most brilliant and influential people within higher education.
