The Black Convocation is an annual event which welcomes new and returning students to the UCLA campus and makes them aware of the different organizations, departments, and resources available to serve them. It is an evening full of Bruin pride, providing encouragement, anecdotes about the past, and a glimpse of the future from UCLA faculty, staff, and alumni dedicated to supporting all students.

Paul Getty Trust. He has served as President of the UCLA Alumni Association Board of Directors and as Alumni Representative on the UC Board of Regents.
