MOCC Spring Recruitment 2017-2018
Founded in the Fall of 2003 at Cornell University, the Men of Color Council (MOCC) is a nonprofit organization for men of color who are dedicated to building a cohesive network and are taking strides towards developing themselves as preprofessionals. The objectives of the Men of Color Council include: empowering men via academic, leadership and professional development; assist with the recruitment, and advancement of men of color; lastly, identifying and cultivating the future leaders of tomorrow. The council's reach extends far beyond Cornell's campus, as we annually host our Men of Color Conference, where students from Cornell's campus, as well as councilmen from other chapters, come together for a weekend of bonding and self-reflection.
Currently, we are looking for the next generation of councilmen because we want our organization to keep growing. The vision of our organization is continually evolving and under the leadership of our next two Co-Presidents, Augustine Mudrak and Jari Watson, we plan to reach new heights.
All the best,
The Councilmen of MOCC

The Big Red Shuttle
We are excited to present the Big Red Shuttle, Cornell's first free late-night transportation service for students who need a safe ride home.
Initially, the Big Red Shuttle provided students with rides during exam periods. However, the need for additional means of late-night transportation has become clear. Now, the Big Red Shuttle is no longer an academic-only resource, but one that provides timely and free transportation to Cornell students everywhere in need of a safe ride home.
Starting Friday, 10/14 , the Big Red Shuttle will run a 20-minute route every Friday and Saturday night from 12am-3am with a professional driver and two student aids trained by Cayuga's Watchers.
