Call For Proposals!
African-American Celebration Month 2013- “My Family, My Community, Ujima”

Link to proposal form

The Center for Multicultural Initiatives (CMI) is once again looking forward to hosting the festivities for African-American Celebration Month (AACM). The 2013 festivities will begin on Monday, January 21, 2013 with the annual Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Awards Celebration and conclude with our closing ceremony on February 14.

We invite your department/organization to submit a proposal so that your event/activity may be included on the AAC Calendar and receive up to $300 in funding.As you prepare your program(s), please make sure that your event clearly addresses the 2013 theme: “My Family, My Community, Ujima”

The goal is to provide quality, inspirational, and educational programs and activities that support the theme. Participation of the entire university (faculty and staff) is important to gain a better understanding of the struggles and triumphs that African-Americans have had and continue to encounter.

Suggestions of potential programs and/or activities that your department may host are listed below. This is in no way an exhaustive list: Debate, Panel Discussion, Workshop, Musician, Symposium, Theatrical Performance.

Please note the following important information:

  1. ALL proposals must be submitted online by 5:00pm Friday, November 19, 2012.
  2. If you are not requesting funding and would like your event to be included on the African-American Celebration Month Calendar you must submit a proposal request.

For questions, please call Omar Brown-El at (248) 370-4404
