More than 25 years ago, Black nursing students at UCLA came together to establish the Pan African Nursing Student and Alumni Association (PANSAA). Today, PANSAA remains an important aspect of student life for UCLA’s Black nursing students and supporters. Our purpose is:

  • To provide a forum that addresses the academic, professional, and social concerns of students enrolled in the UCLA School of Nursing.
  • To promote a celebration of diversity and unity through its support of academia and professional opportunity.
  • To enhance the education of nursing students by providing opportunities to network with esteemed UCLA School of Nursing Alumni, Faculty, and Staff.
  • To assist in recruiting and retaining students of color in the School of Nursing.
  • To enrich the community through service with the collaborative efforts of existing UCLA organizations and local agencies.

For the past five years, PANSAA has held a formal graduation celebration for its members. The PANSAA graduation dinner has become the largest PANSAA gathering of the academic year and our alumni, students and supporters thoroughly enjoy this gathering.

This year’s ceremony is scheduled for evening of Friday, June 10th.

Each graduate is invited to the dinner, free of charge.During the dinner, the graduates are presented with PANSAA stoles to wear to graduation and given a small gift.

In previous years, the dinner was greatly supported by the Dean’s Office. As a response to an anticipated lack of funding, PANSAA board members have planned several fundraisers. However, PANSAA needs additional financial resources in order to fully support the PANSAA graduation dinner. So far, we have experienced moderate success raising funds through our t-shirt sales, TV tapings, other fundraising activities and alumni donations.

As of today, we still need $5,000 in donations and fundraisers to pay for PANSAA’s graduation. Donors may claim tax deductions for donations made to PANSAA. We will provide the federal taxpayer ID number once the donation has been received. We have already raised $1,000 and hope that the money earned from our fundraising efforts and your generous donation will cover the $6,000 needed to pay for our annual graduation dinner. To donate, please give to this online fundraising campaign.

Thank you in advance!
