Florida Atlantic University’s Alumni Association (FAUAA) has launched AMPLIFY, a new program that features a series of webinars, spotlights and digital content that will be based upon the national heritage celebration of each month.

“As our society begins to have substantive conversations about racial bias and inequity, the Alumni Association saw an opportunity to have an influential impact on facilitating more of these conversations and provide resources for continued education,” said Chandra Roberson, assistant director of engagement for FAU’s Office of Alumni Relations. “FAU was founded on the principle of access to higher education for all and has continued that legacy with an incredibly diverse student and alumni base, and we wanted to create a platform that celebrates their accomplishments, tells their stories, and amplifies their voices.” 

AMPLIFY aims to enable discussions on change and to celebrate the impactful influence of minorities within our community and nation. It also includes a Black alumni-owned business directory, which will continuously accept new submissions and be updated regularly.

“Representation is important, so we hope that by showcasing and celebrating the successes and stories of our alumni, it will also act as an inspiration to our current students and our community,” said Roberson.
