The Men of Color Student Leadership Institute (MOCSLI) is the personification of a dream come true to identify, engage, and promote the leadership development of males in traditionally underrepresented communities. Community colleges are well suited to provide the launch pad for many of these men and help them to fulfill their goals and find their rightful place of leadership in their communities, regions, and the world.

During the Institute, you will have the opportunity to interact with professionals of color from across the spectrum, learn and get involved in corporate internships and learn about the best and next practices for success, and develop lasting mentorships and friendships that will undergird your professional and personal journeys.

The 13th Annual Men of Character Student Leadership Institute will be held on October 17-21, 2024
