This group is the Facebook presence of the Black Doctoral Network. Launched in 2012 and headquartered in New York City, The Black Doctoral Network (BDN) is a multidisciplinary clearinghouse for Black and Latino scholars and professionals in the Social Sciences, STEM, and Humanities.

Activating around our motto, sapientis est officium (the wise person has an obligation), BDN carves out for itself an empowered position in Black and Latino communities to mitigate the achievement gap among persons at all education levels, challenge persistent negative stereotypes of Black and Latino achievement, answer the call for diversity in university and professional organizations, and bridge the gap between theory and practices informing extant understandings of disparate outcomes along the lines of race and ethnicity.
