Men of Color Conference planned for April 17,
will be rescheduled. Please check back for further updates.
It is with much regret that I share this news. The April 17th Conference will be postponed. While it is our hope to reschedule this event, we cannot commit to a new date at this time. As many of you are already aware, respective institutions are taking preventive measures that will ensure the health and safety of everyone in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. We at ASU Mid-South are doing what we feel is in the best interests for everyone.
If you have already made payment for conference registration, please reach out to our finance department at 870-733-6711 for a refund.
Hopefully, we can reschedule this event real soon. My apologies for any inconveniences.
Theme: Building Bridges, Creating Change
ASU Mid-South joined the National Consortium on College Men of Color (NCCMC) in fall 2015. The NCCMC supports colleges in building the capacity necessary to advance student success for college men of color, including African-American, Latino, Southeast Asian, Native American, and Pacific Islander men.
Through collaboration and shared passion, the Men Of Color Conference at ASU Mid-South hopes to increase knowledge leading to student success and to begin a collective dialogue of identifying strategies to help Men of Color succeed in the community college sector.
Men of Color Conference
To support the mission of NCCMC, ASU Mid-South will be hosting its Fourth Annual Men of Color Conference on April 17th. This conference provides opportunities for dialogue and professional development in support of collective sense-making, organizational learning, and change.
The conference attracts educators and students from across Arkansas, North Mississippi, Western Tennessee, and beyond. Featured speakers this year include Willie “Satellite” Totten, former Canadian and National Football League player, College Football Hall of Fame member, and the current Quarterbacks Coach at Mississippi Valley State University, as well as ASU Mid-South alumnus and former Greyhound, Marquavious Smith.
