The Male Success Alliance (MSA) will partner with faculty, staff and community organizations to host the fifth annual Spring Summit on Thursday May 8, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Loker Student Union ballroom.
More than 700 high school and middle school students are expected to attend the summit, along with CSU Dominguez Hills students for the interactive conference that is designed to equip students with the necessary tools and resources to be successful.
Established in 2010, MSA seeks to improve access, retention and graduation rates of young men of color through academic support, professional development and mentoring. In line with President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, MSA believes that through brotherhood, integrity and perseverance, they can positively impact every life they encounter.
The annual Spring Summit will bring together CSU Dominguez Hills president Willie J. Hagan, a keynote address from Jeff Duncan-Andrade, associate professor at San Francisco State University, and students such as Jonathan Henderson, an executive board member of MSA who has gone on to become a shining example of how the MSA has propelled him from struggling student to nominee for the Presidential Outstanding Student Award in 2014.
He and numerous other students who have been positively affected by the MSA will participate in breakout sessions that feature campus tours and empowerment workshops.
Registration for the summit is requested. To RSVP or for more information about the MSA Spring Summit, visit the MSA website, http://www4.csudh.edu/msa.
