“Staying True to the Mission.
Building on a Solid Foundation.”
The Ebony Bobcat Network fulfills the tenets of its mission statement with affiliates operating in the following cities representing alumni across the country and internationally as well:

In February 2020, the president of Ohio University and founding members of EBN launched the Akron/Canton affiliate. EBN Akron/Canton is dedicated to fulfilling the EBN mission in our community.
EBN Chicago became an affiliate in the Fall of 2017. We have met with alumni in Greater Chicago to inspire interest and continue to engage Chicago Bobcats.
EBN-Cincinnati/Dayton was established in the Fall of 2015. As one of its first and signature events, the group instituted EBN Connects to connect students, prospective students and their parents to alumni that are Ebony Bobcats.
EBN Cleveland, the charter affiliate, was organized in 2010 to honor the contributions of preceding and present generations of persons of color who attended or are attending Ohio University.
Established in 2014, Ebony Bobcat Network Columbus is an affiliate of the OHIO Ebony Bobcat Network. Consisting of Black alumni from Ohio University, we are a network striving to connect Bobcats of color across the globe.
