1 session on February 26, 2019
Minority Serving Institutions have and continue to play an integral role in granting access, building knowledge, and empowering change that impacts both individuals and society. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, whose legacy we commemorate as a critical figure in the advancement of civil rights and social justice, is an alumnus of Morehouse College—an MSI. Implicit in Dr. King’s push for righteousness, peace, and justice was an immense desire to transform how people of a nation and ultimately the world engaged with one another. It is in this spirit that we frame this forum and engagement with Minority Serving Institutions—from transactional to transformational/transformative change. Featured speakers will provide a broad overview of the MSI landscape, share their experiences with developing relationships with MSIs, and share information on how to do an institutional self-assessment before seeking to partner with MSIs. This session will serve as the first in a series of forums that foster discussion on the socio-historical and contemporary state of MSIs, insights from U-M units with relationships with MSIs, and practical information and resources for engaging MSIs.

Readers & Best was created in the Summer of 2014 as a joint collaboration between the Ginsberg Center’s Literacy Initiatives and the Athletic Department’s Let’s Go Do program. The goal was to provide opportunities for students across campus to come together to support reading in local schools through one-time visits. We provide the monthly curriculum for each visit, which includes a book and activity specific to the grade level of the classroom. The general Readers & Best visit requires a 2.5 hour time block from student volunteers. This includes the brief orientation, travel and the time at the school. Typically, we offer 10 slots for schools participating in the Readers and Best curriculum. The visit is led by a site leader and up to 6 additional students (since we can fit 7 people in a van). Volunteers are at the school for an hour and a half, so each volunteer reads to 2 classrooms for 30 minutes each. The Ginsberg Center provides transportation to and from the schools.
