The upcoming academic year marks a historic milestone for Kenyon: the founding of the Black Student Union (BSU). Established in 1970, the BSU addressed the need for support for the growing number of black students at Kenyon.
A celebratory weekend in honor of the BSU’s 50th anniversary will be held Sept. 27-29, 2019 (Kenyon's Homecoming Weekend), sponsored by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI), the Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement and the Office of the President.
