The Stanford National Black Alumni Association strives to unite Black alumni through our social, cultural and academic kinship. Also known as SNBAA, the organization serves both as a foundation for local chapters across the country and the keeper of the communication network among Stanford Black Alumni. No matter where you are in the world, you can join the Stanford National Black Alumni Association.

Connect With Your Local Chapter

Stanford Black Alumni host local chapters all over the country. Regional Stanford Black Alumni Association (SBAA) clubs provide localized programming with frequent opportunities to engage in activities with fellow alumni in your area.  We encourage membership in an SBAA local chapter in addition to your SNBAA national club membership to expand your connections with Black alumni.  Check out your local club's website to join and receive additional information. Hover over the map for links to our local chapters.

Join the SNBAA Board of Directors

There are two ways to serve on the SNBAA Board.  You may be elected as a board member for a three-year term or become a board associate for any length of time. 


SNBAA Board Member: SNBAA holds annual elections between October 1st and November 15th.  We encourage alumni from different regions, eras, and with different skill sets to apply.  We seek both grad and undergrad degree holders.  Those interested in running for a board position should be a Stanford alum and have two years or more of post-graduation volunteer service to Stanford in any capacity.  Board members are expected to participate in monthly board meetings and signature SNBAA events like Black Alumni Summit and support SNBAA board committees and initiatives. 


SNBAA Board Associates: Associates may step up at any time by contacting the SNBAA Board of Directors.  You may volunteer to support a current SNBAA initiative or lead your own.  Both elected and associate board members are recognized by Stanford for their service.

Join Stanford OVAL

OVAL (Outreach Volunteer Alumni Link) members include alumni or parents of alumni, who serve as ambassadors for Stanford’s Office of Undergraduate Admission and who participate in a host of outreach activities. OVAL utilizes dedicated volunteers to:

(1) share their Stanford experiences with students; and

(2) serve as resources for students who want to learn more about Stanford, or who do not know much at all about us yet.


For most volunteers, the OVAL time commitment is about 5-15 hours per year.

At the heart of Stanford University’s founding principles is “a desire to render the greatest possible service to mankind.”  That spirit of service lives on in our alumni. Each year, more than 11,000 Stanford alumni volunteer to serve the University from the foothills to the Bay and beyond.
