Giving back ~ emPowering ~ Strengthening our culture!
It is our goal to build unity amongst students who identify with or in exploration of the Black/African American cultural and affirm their blackness through cultural awareness, leadership development and community service while they are developing a sense of who they are as individuals and collectively!
Lt. Col. John W. Mosley Student-Athlete Mentoring Program
This program is named after Lt. Col. John W. Mosley, who is Colorado State’s first Black football student-athlete in the record-keeping era. He earned his degree from Colorado State in 1943, and is a proud member of the original Tuskegee Airmen, flying combat missions over Europe in World War II. This program began during the 2011-2012 academic year and is designed to assist student-athletes by serving as a resource while strengthening time management skills, encouraging academic success, enhancing leadership opportunities, and creating a sense of belonging and connection to the campus and its surrounding community.
Rites of Passage Retreat
Colorado State University’s Black/African American Cultural Center Rites of Passage program is designed to support all 1st year students as they transition to college. This is accomplished via a retreat, outings and workshops designed by upper-class students as they serve as mentors!
