OUR MISSION

The Underrep’d is a organization for black collegians. Founded in 2016, by three best friends Aaron Coleman, Tiara Jackson and Kwyn Townsend Riley at the University of Dayton in Ohio.

During their undergraduate academic career, they experienced their fair share of microaggressions, absence of academic staff support and lack of education from their counterparts about black culture.

In October 2016, they all created the ideal website that would include monthly student spotlights from other PWI’s, a nationwide map that lists the organization for black students by state and a opportunity to have a PWI survival guide mailed to you that includes
gifts.

FEATURED STUDENT

The Underrep’d wants students to feel empowered to make change – and what’s better than showing you all off to everyone, everywhere, with our spotlights? 

Nothing. Nothing is better than that. 

So – check out our latest spotlight! And, if there’s a black student you know making change on your campus, nominate them for their own feature!
