Southern Region of The National Council of Black American Affairs

President’s Message



I bid you greetings on behalf of the National Council on Black American Affairs (NCBAA) and the Southern Region!  The National Council on Black American Affairs serves as a collaborative voice for the promotion of academic success of African American students, faculty, staff and administrators.  This is truly an exciting time for NCBAA and the Southern Region as we endeavor to fulfill the organization’s mission by:

  • Improving educational opportunities and professional development for African-American students, faculty, staff, and administration.
  • Developing collaborative relationships between educational, business, and public service institutions with compatible goals, which includes networking to maximize the achievement of career goals for African-American students, faculty, staff, and administration.
  • Ensuring that our voice is heard regarding issues affecting African-Americans in the formulation of policy and decision-making.

NCBAA’s key focus is commitment to professional development and networking opportunities.  I personally have attended the Mid-Level Administrators Institute and can say without reservation that my experiences were very enlightening and career changing.  Through my membership in NCBAA, I have established a nationwide network of professional colleagues (at all levels of administration) and friends that I can “call on” for advice, mentoring, or to just share ideas and best practices.

The following states are part of NCBAA Southern Region: Alabama; Florida; Georgia; Kentucky; Louisiana; Mississippi; South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas; Tennessee; and Virginia.  I encourage colleagues in each state to join NCBAA!  You can join as an individual member, charter a local chapter, or as an institutional member.  If you have any questions about NCBAA or membership, feel free to email me ( or any member of the board.

Best Regards,
Terence L. Wright
President, NCBAA-SO
