Since 2009, the Mizzou Black Men’s Initiative (MBMI) program 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) program 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.
Each year, the MBMI and MBWI programs take an alternative spring break service trip to provide students with a unique opportunity to gain a wider perspective of the world. This trip allows participants the opportunity to be immersed in a life-changing week of service to people and communities around the country. This year, MBMI and MBWI will be collaborating on a service trip to Nashville, TN. from March 19 – 23, 2020. Some of the highlights will include service opportunities related to working with local food banks, homeless outreach and rehabilitation programs, and networking with local college students in the area.
Our students are very excited about attending this trip and getting involved in the local community of Nashville. Please join us in supporting the MBMI and MBWI students in reaching their goal of attending the Spring Break Service Trip!
