SOME OF OUR MSUBA STUDENT TOUCH-POINTS AND PROGRAMS

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

MSUBA has awarded over 400 scholarships for undergraduate to advanced degrees.   Support for emergency funding has also been provided.  We currently have more than 26 endowed scholarships and ????

 

MSUBA SCHOLARS

Current MSUBA scholarship recipients participate in periodic sessions with our Scholarship Committee.  Professional development opportunities, workshops, and conversations with experts in the workforce on wellness, leadership, and education are not uncommon. The MSUBA Scholars program was piloted In 2021 and included a few 2021 Scholarship Recipients and MSUBA members to enhance current students’ school experience.

 

MSUBA LOCAL CHAPTERS

Our MSUBA network reaches incoming students, students on break during the summer and holidays, and potential students and parents.  Networking, outreach, and social opportunities are available through our local chapters in Atlanta (GA), Dallas/Ft Worth (TX), Chicagoland (IL), Detroit (MI), Lansing (MI), Los Angeles (CA), Oakland County (MI), Saginaw (MI).

 

Examples

  • Our Oakland County Chapter hosts a Welcome reception for incoming freshmen and their parents to hear about MSU experiences from alumni and current students.  Student organizations are also invited to the event to have a “vendor table” so freshmen can learn about student organizations. 

  • Care packages were sent to select Detroit area students for finals week by our MSUBA-Detroit Chapter

  • MSUBA-Saginaw Chapter hosts regular informal dinner meetups with MSU students from the Saginaw area in East Lansing during the semester.   Sense of belonging and establish a network to support each other.

 

MSUBA MENTORS PROGRAM

Student outcome data indicates Black students at MSU are experiencing significant opportunity gaps, especially in the graduation gap. In our research, we have discovered that if Black students actively participate in a student group or organization, engage in high-impact experiences, and have committed mentors, these students will matriculate and successfully graduate. 

 

We are actively asking more Black Alumni to volunteer, register, and serve as mentors and help eliminate the graduation and other opportunity gaps. We expect that MSUBA interaction with students will take place via, Zoom, online conference, phone calls, text messaging, FaceTime, or emails and should not exceed two hours per month!  Our partnership with the MSU Career Services Network, makes this effort easy, as we use MSU Connect - a professional, networking and mentorship platform to engage in successfully building connections for our students. The platform also provides alumni an opportunity for mentors to connect with other alumni to support their career, advancement, and development.

ON CAMPUS INTERACTION 

Throughout the year, members of MSUBA participate in student-led events on the Michigan State campus like discussion groups, workshops, meetings, social events, Soul Food Fridays, the Black Celebratory, and more. With our MSUBA-Lansing Chapter being closest in proximity to campus, support and alumni engagement.

 

HOMECOMING

Since 1980, MSUBA has hosted a Homecoming reunion --every year. Since passing around a pumpkin and collecting the first $1000, homecoming reunions have become a source of raising money for scholarships.  There is a student-centered networking event during homecoming that allows alumni and student interface, social events such as tailgate, and an event to honor our current year scholarship recipients and distinguished awardees. 

 

STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE

A Student Advisory Committee was approved by the Board of Directors in 202x. This committee consists of current student leaders and is the sounding board for the president and the board of directors to better understand the campus needs. The president aims to meet/mentor these students by hosting business dinners, and meetings, and providing these students with additional leadership opportunities.
