The Black Collegiate Gaming Association’s purpose is to pivot black and women of color college students into the overall gaming industry, not only as consumers, but as contributors. We strive to build-up students that will be prepared to interview and become a part of the gaming industry both on the competitive and corporate level. We will aide in creating future groundbreakers.
