Center4ME Multicultural Advisory Board

 

 

 

 

The Liberty University Multicultural Advisory Board (MAB) serves as a vehicle for alumni to support multicultural programs and minority students at Liberty, by offering assistance to raise awareness for services and programs provided by the Center for Multicultural Enrichment Center4ME.

The Center4ME, established in 1992, provides advocacy for students of color, as well as celebrates cultural diversity across campus. The purpose of the Center for Multicultural Enrichment is to unify the various cultural and ethnic populations on the campus by overcoming divisions. The Center serves as an advocate to minority students and seeks to celebrate cultural diversity by offering experiential learning opportunities to all students.

MAB Membership

The board is made up of dedicated supporters who commit their energies to aid the Center4ME by promoting unity, celebrating diversity and advocating for minority students. In consultation with the Vice President of Student Affairs and Director of the Center4ME, board members assist in projects that enhance the quality of student life for, not only culturally-diverse students, but the entire student body. There is no fee associated with Board Membership.

What We Do

Anticipated projects include, but are not limited to; Minority Leadership Programs, Multicultural Lecturer/Symposium Series, and Global Networking Initiative. The MAB plays an integral part in ensuring a bright and promising future for all Liberty students.

Benefits of Membership

As members of the board, you will receive many honorary benefits such as; opportunities to impart knowledge to Liberty students, holding an active position in Homecoming events, priority seating at the Achievement Awards and receipt of honorary invitations for various special department events.

The greatest benefit, of course, is supporting your alma mater - the reward of positively impacting students. By becoming an active member of the board you can play an integral role in unifying Liberty’s campus and improving the lives of a diverse student body. Be a part of something life-changing.

Dear Alumni,

Greetings from the Center for Multicultural Enrichment (Center4ME) where our purpose is to unify the various cultural and ethnic populations on the campus by overcoming divisions. The Center serves as an advocate to minority students and seeks to celebrate cultural diversity by offering experiential learning opportunities to all students.

We would like to extend a wonderful opportunity to stay connected with Liberty University's campus community by becoming a member of the Multicultural Advisory Board (MAB).  The late Dr. Falwell was passionate about the concept of the "Liberty family"; thus, we should make a concerted effort to stay connected as friends, supporters and alumni of Liberty University. 

The MAB strives to create a positive experience for current students with the help of vested individuals who are eager to be involved and contribute to their Liberty experience. The MAB provides that opportunity - a win/win situation for both you and current students. Joining the MAB will allow you have a positive influence and impact the lives of the students here at Liberty University today.  

Please see below for an overview of the Multicultural Advisory Board.  After reviewing it, prayerfully consider your participation. We would love to answer any questions and/or to talk further about your interest in being a part of this board.  Feel free to call us at 434.592.4914.  Thank you and we look forward to you joining with us in training champions for Christ.

Sincerely,

The Center for Multicultural Enrichment Administrative Staff
