The National Alumnae Association of Spelman College (NAASC) is the official organization that supports Spelman College, a historically black college for women, through financial gifts, student recruitment, sisterhood, community service, and recognition of Spelman women. The Alumnae Association began in May 19, 1892, and the Detroit Chapter followed suit, organizing on May 7, 1931.
Before and after incorporation of the NAASC in 1976, the Detroit Chapter (Detroit NAASC) has consistently supported the goals and mission of Spelman College through financial support and recruitment of talented students from the metropolitan Detroit area. The Detroit Chapter has emphasized alumna networking and the identification and promotion of projects deemed to be of special concern to the Black community and Black women in particular.
Greetings Alumnae and Friends,
