MSU Explores…2021 – “MSU Explores…” is a re-imagining of a previous event known as Tunnel of Oppression that is being transformed into a diverse series of events addressing issues that affect our communities and society at-large. The events take place throughout the month of April and support MSU’s Public Affairs mission by allowing our community, our staff, and our students to be a part of something bigger than themselves. The topics this year are: #BlackAtMoState, Domestic Violence, Intersectionality, Media Mindfulness, and Cancel Culture.
