About Us


The Society of Minority Managers (SMM) is a support group for historically underrepresented minority students within the School of Management.  SMM allows members to gain leadership experience through managing projects and events from conceptualization/planning to execution/completion. SMM focuses on preparing members for corporate America through trainings, conferences, guest speakers, and workshops that build and promote academic excellence and career development. Peer-to-peer mentoring is the foundation of our support group, while community service is a major tenet of the organization.

This year we need your help to help others. Donate any coats, gloves, scarves or hats so that we can help an elementary school here in Lafayette. You can drop them off in our SMM Office located on the 3rd floor of Krannert. Give back to the Lafayette community this Christmas.
