In celebrating our Heritage Months for 2023, we share information and the stories of how their heritage shaped the values and identities of our alumni growing up, how that identity was transformed as midshipmen and then as Navy and Marine Corps officers, and finally how that experience made them the kinds of leaders and servants they are today.

February marks Black History Month, a celebration whose origins date to 1926 that has been observed by presidents starting with Gerald Ford. As an alumni community, we want to celebrate the achievements of our Black alumni and the milestones they have reached in service to this nation. Learn more.
