We want to SHOW YOU Southeast - one of the most beautiful college campuses you will visit!
Southeast offers a world-class academic experience at an affordable cost. The university’s 200 areas of study emphasize national accreditation, experiential learning and career preparation. In addition to our small class sizes, our faculty and staff genuinely care about your success.
The Southeast Missouri University Foundation has announced a $40 million comprehensive campaign, the most ambitious fund-raising effort in the University’s history, to directly support current and future students.
The campaign, named “Honoring Tradition, Inspiring Success,” is focused on increasing scholarships and supporting programs and renovations that benefit students.
Use African-American in most references. Use black only in reference to Black History Month, which is in February. The name of the campus office serving minorities is called
the Office of Minority Student Programs.
Native American is the preferred term in reference to American Indians. Where possible, be precise
and use the name of the tribe. ie. He is a Navajo commissioner. In news stories about
American Indians, such words as wampum, warpath, powwow, tepee, brave, squaw, etc., can be disparaging and offensive. Be careful and certain of their usage.
Hispanic is the preferred term for those whose ethnic origin is in a Spanish-speaking country.
Latino is acceptable for Hispanics who prefer that term. Use a more specific identification when possible, such as Cuban, Puerto Rican or Mexican-American or the name of an indigenous group in a Latin American country. Avoid Chicano as a synonym for Mexican-American. Refer to people of Brazilian and Portuguese origin as such, not as Hispanic.
