BrotherHOOD Initiative (Helping Others Obtain Degrees) - The BrotherHOOD is a university-wide program designed to engage, empower, retain and graduate more first-generation, low-income and culturally underrepresented male students at EMU. Through collaborative partnerships with offices throughout the university, this program will equip them with the tools to be successful when they leave. One of our main signature programs is the "Barber Shop", a safe space where men can gather for free haircuts, good food and meaningful dialogue on a series of topics built around success-driven research, developmental theory and concepts of health and wellness.
BrotherHOOD "Barber Shop" - Come get a free haircut, grab a bite to eat and enjoy meaningful dialogue with other male students, faculty, staff and alumni.
SisterHOOD Initiative (Helping Others Obtain Degrees) - The SisterHOOD was established September 3rd, 2014. SisterHOOD is a university-wide initiative designed to engage, empower, retain and graduate more females of color at Eastern Michigan University. Through collaborative partnerships with offices throughout the university, we employ a success-driven approach to help females of color develop as students and as women instead of addressing deficits and challenges they need to overcome.
We also provide support, advice and training for leaders and Advisers of multicultural, social justice and faith-based student organizations as well as students interested in developing new student groups.
