Event: Building Power Beyond the Ballot at Minority-Serving Institutions

The Citizens Campaign and the Rutgers Center for Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) co-hosted a webinar on “Training Citizen Leaders at MSIs: Building Power Beyond the Ballot.” MSIs – whether they are HBCUs, land-grant institutions, anchor institutions, or community colleges – are on a special mission to empower their students and expand their sense of their own potential. Marybeth Gasman, director of the Center for MSIs and the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Leadership, Equity, and Justice, moderated the discussion. She found the energy and dedication of the panelists contagious!
