The MSI Oral History Project

The Minority Serving Institutions Oral History Project series aims to share a glimpse into the careers of higher education leaders who have had an impact on research and practice related to MSIs. This initiative was born out of a class titled “Understanding Minority Serving Institutions,” in which students interviewed key figures in higher education who have led MSIs, work to advocate for MSI inclusion in larger discussion within higher education or conduct MSI-related research. These important individuals range from faculty in higher education to MSI presidents to those working within nonprofit organizations that support MSIs.

This series comes out during a time when MSIs are more important than ever. In addition to publishing these stories, CMSI will be running a month-long social media campaign (#MSIOralHistories) to highlight not only those featured in the oral histories but the writers that created them.
