Student Programming

MENASA Student Resources hosts its own workshops and events as well as collaborates closely with on campus departments to support student programming. These include, but are not limited to, workshops, speakers, conferences and much more! The following are some re-occuring events we put on every quarter in conjunction with our one time events. 

  • MENASA Meetups are a series of biweekly sessions during which Middle Eastern, North African, and/or South Asian students socialize and engage in dialogue about issues pertaining to their experiences, cultures, and identities. Coffee/chai/qahwa and snacks are provided! Friends and allies are welcome. 
  • Book/Podcast Club aims to help students come together through the joy of reading! What makes us different from other book clubs is that we will be reading books that are written by Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian identifying authors or those with intersecting identities. Each quarter we choose a different book and hold some time to discuss what we read and learned. No experience required! These are held in Winter Quarter.
  • Mentorship & Volunteer Program (MVP) with the Middle Eastern, North African, South Asian Student Resources Unit is an opportunity for first and second year, and transfer students at UC Davis. This is an excellent opportunity to get your foot in the door with campus involvement. The unit is looking to support folks with little to no experience. Don't be shy, just apply! As a MENASA MVP you will get hands-on experience in organizing campus events and building community for fellow undergraduate students by working along side our Community Organizers.
