Multicultural Student Events

  • The Minority Male Initiative (MMI) strives to empower, support and assist men of color in creating a strong foundation of success that you can build upon in the years to come. Students who participate in initiatives such as this tend to achieve higher grades, be more academically and socially integrated into campus, and graduate at higher rates.
  • Multicultural Overnight Visit Experience (M.O.V.E.) enables interested students of color to stay overnight in one of our residence halls. During the day, participants will visit classrooms, interact with faculty, explore campus and discover Charleston.
  • Senior Project and Junior Project are summer college preparatory programs for rising high school seniors and juniors. The program is intended for multicultural and/or first generation students who are interested in attending college.
