My name is Dar Mayweather and I have a Masters is Higher Education Emphasis in Student Leadership and Bachelor in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology, all obtained at Grand Valley State University. It is an honor and a pleasure to be the Coordinator for the Center for Multicultural Affairs. I started my career in Student Affairs at Illinois State University in Residence Life. I continued my career in Residence Education at the University of Michigan, where I honed my skills in Multicultural Education. I believe the Center for Multicultural Affairs should play a critical role in corralling the EMU community around social issues to create social change. Social change is more about the journey and not the destination; we have a great opportunity to engage people who are interested in becoming more socially aware citizens through social and educational programs, events, lectures, workshops, and fun activities. I'm a firm believer in challenging and supporting our students to pursue their passions. Through exploration, exposure, and awareness students can become leaders who can recognize and appreciate our growing global economy.
My name is Ebony Walls and I am a first year Graduate student. As a TruEMU alum I obtained a Bachelors in Social Work (BSW) and a national certification in Non-Profit Leadership through the Non-Profit Leadership Alliance (NLA). I'm currently pursuing a Masters in Public Administration, with a specialization in Non-Profit Management and French. I chose to pursue a career with the Center for Multicultural Affairs because of my passions for service and to inspire all to achieve beyond mediocrity! As an aspiring global change agent I believe it's imperative to value, appreciate, and be willing to continuously expand our knowledge of all cultures. I believe EMYou should get involve because of the many signature events the CMA host such as our annual National Heritage Months and Hustle Your Heart Out; gain professional development, meet new friends ect. EMU is filled with rich diversity with students from all across the globe representing over 87 countries. As the Graduate Assistant I feel it is my duty to not only share my riches with our students, but also reveal to them their own.
My name is Quatez Scott and I am in the final year of my graduate studies in Higher Education/Student Affairs at Eastern Michigan. I currently serve as the Graduate Hall Director of Putnam Hall, which houses first-year students. I am from Cincinnati, OH, and aim to earn my PhD in an area that allows me to continue studying culture, so that I can help bring the world together--one relationship at a time.
Hi! My names is Theresa Riles. I am a Communications major and a General Business minor. As a future Student Affairs professional I would like to get experience outside of my norm. The Center for Multicultural Affairs is a challenge for me to educate myself on other cultures, races, and ethics. I want to give back to the cultural community of EMU and leave my footprint within the office. EMYou should get involved with the CMA! It is an office of opportunity, community, and service. It offers help and assistance for those considered to be apart of minorities and different cultural backgrounds. It is a place of home and security. It is a place to be yourself and express who you are inside and out. EMU get involved with the CMA!!
Hello. My name is Courtney Morris. I am a senior studying Health Administration and Social Work. I choose to work for CMA because being a part of this team allows me to get in touch with different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I genuinely have a passion for working with people with different cultures other than myself. EMU should get involved with CMA because connecting people with different lifestyles & traditions should be the norm for our campus community. Our primary focus is to introduce all cultures and recognize everyone. One Love!
Hello! My name is Kali Stanton and I'm a senior here at Eastern Michigan University. I'm a sociology major with a concentration on family, health, and aging as well as a concentration on the public and private sector. EMYou should get involved with the Center for Multicultural Affairs because it is a great way to explore your own culture as well as others.
My name is Nakayla Clark and I am currently a Junior. My major is Therapeutic Recreation with a Minor in Spanish Language. I chose to work for the Center for Multicultural Affairs because I wanted to not only educate myself on the different cultures on campus but to educate other students as well. I don't think the students at EMU understand that Eastern is one of the most diverse colleges in Michigan! I think EMYou should get involved because understanding and appreciating others for their cultural backgrounds and differences that they might have can open your mind to a new world!! No one person is the same so why not use our resources and services to gain knowledge and new friendships?
