Student Development

The goal of the MIC Student Leadership Program is to engage students in co-curricular and extracurricular experiences that enhance their collegiate experience. Our mission is committed to training and advising Multicultural student leaders with learning, service, and extracurricular opportunities; provide leadership training; promote school spirit; create unity and a unique Dixie culture; and offer a voice to the underrepresented student body.
Meaningful involvement has been proven to strengthen students’ commitment to education, the institution, and their community. Furthermore, students who are actively engaged receive higher grades, transfer less, gain skills that lead to better jobs, obtain increased networking opportunities, have more friends, and are substantially more satisfied with their college experience.
