About the Council
The AHANA Alumni Council of Boston College promotes the involvement of African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian-American, and Native American (A.H.A.N.A.) alumni in the life of the University. AHANA is more than an acronym. The term established an ideology of interconnectedness between students of color at Boston College who represented communities from all over the world, and who through various programs and activities, showed how intertwined and similar their cultural histories, traditions, and experiences remained.
The AHANA Alumni Council sponsors and promotes various activities and networking events featuring issues of interest to African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian and Native American alumni/ae. We aim to increase alumni volunteer leaders from the AHANA community. To that end, the Council plays a crucial role in connecting alumni to one another, creating professional networking opportunities for its members, and maintaining a connection with current students.
We serve our members by regularly providing programs, activities, educational and network opportunities within and outside of the Boston College community. We also provide mentoring opportunities and a system of support for undergraduate students of color, promoting the value of post-graduate involvement at BC. We further seek to aid Boston College in its continued goal of promoting institutional diversity initiatives by seeking the representation of people of color at all levels of the University.
