1. Mizzou Black Men's Initiative - A Short Film


    from Jordan R. Williams Added 2 0 0

    The Mizzou Black Men’s Initiative (MBMI) is a leadership development program provided by the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center. We understand that leaving home can be challenging, therefore, the purpose of the program is to assist in the successful transition of Black freshmen males into the collegiate environment. There are three pillars that guide the operation of the program: Support, Development, and Involvement Students are supported through one on one meetings with professional staff members and peer mentors to allow time for goal setting, academic monitoring, and social support. Leadership skills are developed through the SSC 1150 course, participation in leadership activities, and community service opportunities. Lastly, students are encouraged to get involved through various campus lectures, exposure to campus resources, and our networking events with faculty/staff, and community leaders. The MBMI program was awarded the 2015 Outstanding Men’s Program for the American College Personnel Association (ACPA). The MBMI program was also awarded the 2015 Outstanding Program by the University of Missouri Division of Student Affairs.

    • Roommate Stories: Kate & Abby


      from MU Residential Life Added 141 0 0

      KATE: I was kinda like a little on-edge coming in, but when I was talking to her over the summer she seemed pretty normal, so that was good! KATE: We met post ROAR. I kind of liked doing it completely random, I think it worked out really well for us. ABBY: When we first started texting, we talked about being excited for Mizzou, and then eventually, we were like, "Well, what's your view on staying out late? What are you like?" We just kinda seemed to be on the same page for most of the things, so it really worked out. KATE: We're in a 'Women in Business' FIG, so we have classes together and with other girls on the floor. ABBY: I think being in a FIG has given me the opportunity to meet some people that I wouldn't have otherwise. Especially because I'm in engineering and there's a whole dorm that's dedicated to that! It's enabled me to meet all these different girls that are really great! KATE: It's nice to like know a couple of people in your classes like the first week or two of school. So you're not going in blind in like those really big lectures with like 300 people! You already know a few people from your floor, so that's been nice. ABBY: The best way to prepare for having a roommate is to just know that you are living with someone else, and that you have to be respectful of them. So like, if you're watching TV and you notice it looks like your roommate is studying, like, plug your headphones in! Do something like that. KATE: You know if they're listening to music out loud, don't be passive aggressive. Just let them know! Say, "hey, could you throw your headphones in?" I guess it's just communication. Talk to them before you start a fight. Musical Attribution: "Easy Lemon" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...
