Mission: To create a strong union among students of color who are pursuing careers in journalism, public relations, telecommunication and advertising at the University of Florida.

History: The Gator Chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, formerly known as the Association of Black Communicators, was founded in 1980 as the first minority organization in the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications. The name was changed in 2012 to reflect its relationship with the National Association of Black Journalists, the professional parent organization. In its 32 years of excellence, it has promoted and encouraged journalism and communications as a career for students while gaining operational support from the college’s Knight Division.
