New this fall at MU is the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (ISE). Seeking to have more emphasis on each student's identity and what it means to be an inclusive campus community, this office was formed from a merger of the Office of Student Programs and the Center for Multicultural Student Affairs. The staff is composed of new and familiar faces that you would recognize from other areas on campus. Quantrell Willis is assistant dean of the new office, Molly Berry is director, Alicia Gilbert is associate director, Tonya Hines is coordinator and Tammy Morrison is administrative assistant.
ISE is the hub of campus life, connecting students to leadership opportunities and assisting with personal development. ISE is a place where students can come and be themselves, hanging out in comfortable seating and getting to know the staff.
No programs or events were lost when these former offices merged; in fact ISE plans to bring more educational opportunities to campus this year in addition to involvement with campus-wide signature programming, such as First Week, Homecoming and celebrations like the MLK vigil and Conversation on Race. Among the new programs are celebrations of Native American History Month in November and Asian-American History Month in May.
All alumni are invited to visit the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement in Lower RTUC. We are happy to welcome you home.
