Center for Diversity and Inclusion-Led Groups

鈥淏uilding leaders through community鈥

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion sponsors the Men鈥檚 Enrichment Network. 

Men's Enrichment Network (MEN)

This is a group leadership and mentoring program for male-identifying students of color. A male professional from various sectors (business, law, education, medicine, etc.) comes in every so often to share his professional journey with students and encourage them personally and professionally. Male students tend to be less engaged than female students; however this program has increased the sense of belonging and community among male students of color. We have tried several outreach efforts in the past, but this program has been the most impactful and we expect it to continue to grow. 

Hope Advocates for Invisible Conditions (HAIC)

Women of Color United (WOCU)

A female professional from various sectors (business, law, education, medicine, etc.) comes in from time to time to share her professional journey with students and encourage them personally and professionally. One highlight include partnering with the political science department to take a group of 25 students to Chicago to see the play Hamilton, an extraordinary musical about the founding father Alexander Hamilton. This will be a life-long memorable experience for students, a true highlight of their experience at Hope.
