Honors College Multicultural Alliance

Honors College Multicultural Alliance Our commitment to diverse and multiple perspectives enhances our ability to provide commentary from the minority experience in the Honors College.

Vision Statement Honors College Black Ambition strives to critically assess race and address issues of access embodied within the Honors College black experience. Utilizing our members, faculty support, allies, and various organizations, we will devote ourselves to forming a representative group of students who create a sense of belonging in the Honors College. Partnerships with other organizations will establish a larger presence of the Honors College Black Ambition on campus, with the intentions of promoting academic, career, and personal excellence in our community. By raising awareness of issues and discussing them, we strive to open the minds of faculty and other students in order to foster change in policies of cultural awareness within the Honors College. This will provide an opportunity for underrepresented students to have a voice.

Mission: Honors College Multicultural Alliance (HCMA): an honors, student-run organization intent on creating a diverse presence within Mason’s Honors College. We encourage everyone to join us in establishing a sustainable, diverse, and equitable community. Through our unapologetically provocative programs, we strive to dissolve stigmas and create unity amongst the Honors College community by uplifting each other through Fellowship, Resources, Education, and Empowerment (a F.R.E.E. Community). Other than contributing to Mason as a diverse Student-Registered Organization, ultimately we plan to serve as the student advisory board for Honors College faculty.

Honors College Black Ambition’s founding members were dedicated to providing a platform for the black student body within the Honors College. We are still committed and dedicated to serving black students within the Honors College, but we would like to extend our reach to all multicultural voices and allies within the Honors College! We are doing this after realizing that a lot of multicultural voices within the Honors College were not being heard! As we are an organization committed to diversity, we are now: “Honors College Multicultural Alliance”!

Name: Tianna Gregory
Major: Neuroscience
Minor: Spanish
Year: 2018
Hometown: Chester, VA
Position: Treasurer
Here's what Tianna has to say about the upcoming academic year:
"I have been participating with HCBA since this past fall semester, and I think this initiative is something very special not only for us, as black honors college students, but as a whole for this school. The things I see us doing in the future could be so monumental. Although my contribution thus far has been small, I hope to have a bigger role as we progress into a RSO. I have ideas on how to make our money grow. Of course, we would have the funds from the dues paid by members; however, that is not always enough. Fundraising would be vital to adding to the funds we have available to us. It could be simple things such as fundraising at on-campus food places, selling merchandise, or doing certain services. All of this would be discussed with HCBA as a whole. We want to be able to put on some of the best events this campus has ever seen, but money is definitely needed to make that a practical goal."
Congratulations Tianna! #hcba
