IMG_7157The Multicultural Student Leadership Institute is a Rider University organization aimed at fostering student connections with faculty and staff and the at large community.  To launch a year of new and innovative programming, the Multicultural Student Leadership Institute (MSLI) held a meet and greet networking dinner in late September.  Students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to discuss ways they could collaborate on diverse projects and develop mentorships during the 2009-2010 school year.  On hand was our newly appointed Dean, Sharon Sherman, to initiate discussion with education students and foster connections with staff throughout Rider and its surrounding community.   This October, the institute celebrates Unity Days 2009 with a variety of workshops for the campus community.  “Social Justice” is the theme for Unity Days with an emphasis on the crisis in Darfur, Sudan. For that reason, Unity Days’ keynote speaker will be Emmanuel Jal, former Sudanese child soldier, author and hip-hop artist. The events begin on Wednesday, October 14, continue on Thursday, October 15, and culminate on Monday, October 19. The events of Unity Days aim to bring together students, faculty and staff and to celebrate the diverse elements within the Rider community.
