Mungano

Mungano is a student-run diversity organization on the Baldwin City campus of Baker University. The word Mungano is derived from a longer Swahili phrase that means brothers and sisters united. It translates simply to united, which is the message that we, the members of Mungano, strive for: a world of many cultures, united.

Mission Statement

We, the members of Mungano, strive to encourage and promote cultural awareness and diversity through education at Baker University and surrounding communities by reaching out to everyone regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, nationality, gender, or sexual orientation for a better understanding of humanity

Activities

Mungano Alumni Tailgate

Each year, the Office of Multicultural Affairs hosts a barbecue to allow former members of Mungano an opportunity to share their experiences with current members. This event allows students and alumni to network and enjoy fellowship. It also strengthens the sense of community upon which Baker University thrives.

Summer Student Meet & Greet

Incoming students get a head start on fostering relationships and connecting to a support network by meeting students before classes begin.

Candlelight Vigil

This celebration pays homage to those who have fought for justice and equality. The vigil features poetry and presentations by students and recognition of students within the Mungano organization and culminates with a candle-lit walk across campus while singing songs from the civil rights era.
