WAYNE MANZILLA DIVERSITY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Wayne Manzilla graduated in 1888 and was the first African-American to graduate from Mount Union.
In Wayne Manzilla's honor, and in order to diversify the staff at the University, we seek to employ recent minority UMU graduates and help them to complete advanced degrees, which will allow them to assume full-time positions at the University.
