Each year the Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence hosts the Multicultural Kickoff, a two day event which helps first-year students make a successful transition to college by building community and identifying academic and cultural supports on campus. Typically 300-400 incoming first year students attend this event and are in small groups led by current student leaders.
This year the event is being held on Tuesday, August 28 and Wednesday August 29 and we will need a lot of help to make it a success. That is where you come in! We are looking for students who will be available to help with a variety of activities during the Kickoff - everything from helping with setup, to working with students, to assisting with the resource fair, etc. If you are interested in volunteering for any portion of time, we would like to obtain your contact information now before the semester ends and then in August, we will email you to let you know the times, locations, exact duties, etc.
If you are interested in volunteering and will be available to come to campus is late August, please sign up using this Google Form: MKO Volunteer Interest Form
