Plus, students can view previously recorded workshops and interviews via the on demand video library.
  • Networking/On- and Off-Campus Events: This is where a sense of belonging and exposure to the value of our network is experienced. As we gather, students and the community at large converge to share information and provide opportunities to view or participate in rich dialogue on pervasive topics relevant to our community. In addition, we also sponsor off-campus trips to other colleges, museums, sporting events, and out-of-town conferences for men of color.
  • Community Engagement: Leadership is activated and demonstrated through all of the members of CME. We prioritize civic engagement as a platform to execute the values and actions consistent with being a positive contributor to our communities. Partnerships with local non-profits and other people serving entities are utilized to reach and teach those most in need.
