The bLOUprint is the complete slate of programs of the Mary Lou Williams Center initiated and facilitated by students that represent targeted outreach to students of African descent.
This innovative initiative harnesses the creativity and energy of the past year and provides a framework to connect four separate efforts to engage Black students in the life of the University. In the interest of providing a firm foundation upon which to build an academic and professional career, the bLOUprint, which is student initiated and facilitated, provides intentional programming at each stage of the college career and in preparation for the lives' students will lead after Duke.
It provides identity, leadership, and professional development opportunities and support for new and returning students. Students will be invited to participate in the bLOUprint - either in a singular component or multiple facets.
