We are building a powerful network, through mentoring and initiatives, to connect alumni and students of color to each other and the greater Lafayette College community.

The McDonogh Network is an active and engaged networking organization consisting of multiple generations of Lafayette College’s Black alumni and students. The network seeks to support current members’ emotional, social, and academic growth through mentorship, communications, events, and activities. The organization will serve as a forum to uplift Black voices, support racial equity, and foster a healthy Lafayette experience.
