Since 2009, the Mizzou Black Men’s Initiative (MBMI) has assisted in the successful transition of Black freshmen males into the collegiate environment by focusing on three pillars: support, development, and involvement. Its sister organization, the Mizzou Black Women’s Initiative (MBWI) was created in 2010 to equip African American female students with the appropriate tools to be successful leaders in their undergraduate careers and future endeavors through three guiding principles: academic support, social support, and professional development.
This year, MBMI and MBWI are working together to coordinate a service trip to Houston, TX. from March 21 – 26, 2019. Some of the highlights will include service opportunities related to women and children, working with the homeless population, and networking with local college students in the area.
