Greetings!

My name is Jasmine and I am one of the coordinators of the 2012 Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE) Multicultural Kick Off (MKO). I would like to personally thank you for registering. This is a very special event that our office has hosted for many years. Each year, we look forward to welcoming first-year students like you to the U of M. The connections that you will make with faculty, staff, and current students during MKO will prove to be invaluable to you as you begin your academic journey here.

Please check your email regularly for updates from us. We will be sending out important detailed information in August. However, at this point, just so you have an idea of what will be going on, here are the basics.

You will be assigned to a small group of incoming students along with two current student leaders. Click to see your future MKO Leaders!
