Student Organizations at Manhattan School of Music are designed to give students an opportunity to build leadership and interpersonal skills, while contributing to the Manhattan School of Music community.
Each student organization works with the Student Engagement Office, and is organized by students with common interests. Students are invited to initiate and register their group with the Office at the start of each academic year. Groups are open to full-time Manhattan School of Music students in good standing.
The purpose of the Black Student Union is to provide a sense of unity, support, and cooperation among the black students at Manhattan School of Music. In addition, this organization will provide educational and social opportunities for the entire Manhattan School of Music community to come together to learn about and celebrate the rich heritage, history, and contributions of persons of African ancestry. This will be done by sponsoring cultural activities and educational workshops relating to African heritage and culture. All Manhattan School of Music students are welcome.
