Honors Presents and the Black Student Union at MSU: The Impact of the University System of Black Students
- Friday, October 16, 2020 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm
*Please RSVP for this event*
The Black Student Union’s primary purpose is to advocate for the Black community, promote leadership, and embrace and educate about Black culture and issues. The BSU also strives to provide a welcoming and supportive space for Black students at Montana State University and beyond. Anaya, Tristan, and Jess are the current elected leadership of the BSU at MSU and strive to fulfill its goals as well as work to improve the overall experience of Black students on campus.
This presentation will outline the variety of ways that colleges and universities can impact the experience and enrollment of Black students. BSU will examine the history of the university structure as well as the contemporary university system and discuss how different aspects of higher education, such as admissions, academic elitism, designated spaces, and culture shock, can both positively and negatively effect the education of Black students.
