Heritage Month Celebration
The University of Michigan offers a range of programs, performances, lectures and other events in celebration of the rich heritage of communities of color that are reflected at the University. The Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs is committed to partnering with student organizations, departments and units to contribute to these efforts during the recognized months and throughout the academic year.
MESA/TMC initiates and supports the creation and distribution of several event calendars and listserv announcements, develops MESA/TMC signature events for heritage months, and participates in committee partnerships with other University units and departments. Students, staff, and faculty are invited to join the committees to help coordinate the efforts for the month(s). If you are interested in joining a committee, please email email@example.com.
Nourish: A lunch series for women of color
The Nourish Program is partnership by Office of Multi–Ethnic Student Affairs and the Office of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) addressing some of the unique needs and experiences of women of color. The program seeks to empower women of color around issues of identity, intercultural competency, and health and wellness that affect them in an open, spirited atmosphere. The program welcomes all University of Michigan women of color – undergraduate and graduate, faculty and staff. The purpose of this dialogue is to create much–needed safe spaces to discuss relevant and often sensitive issues specific to women’s experiences within marginalized communities. It offers a space for self–expression, reflection, and open dialogue. Additionally, free lunch is provided to participants. The sessions occur on Thursdays from 11:30am–1:00pm in the MSA Chambers of the Michigan Union (3rd floor).
