Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) Summit: From Awareness and Understanding to Planning and Action

Rackham Graduate School is excited to host its first MSI summit. This meeting is informed by and builds on the efforts of the National Forum for the Public Good in Higher Education (The Forum), the National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID), and the myriad programs and departments that are committed to building pathways to opportunity into graduate and professional education and beyond.

This year’s summit uses the Forum’s framework of awareness, understanding, planning, and action in an effort to provide attendees with information and resources to support them wherever they are in the process of relationship building with Minority Serving Institutions.

The goals of the MSI summit are to:

  • Expand awareness and understanding of Minority Serving Institutions
  • Highlight some of the University of Michigan’s historical and contemporary relationships with Minority Serving Institutions
  • Learn of strategies and best practices for building relationships with MSIs

We invite you to join us for the entire summit or join us for the sessions that interest you most.
