Azuka MuMin, 2012

Individualized Master of Arts

"Azuka explored the 'connectedness of everything,' looking at more inclusive approaches to engage people across racial and social class divisions."

Azuka’s story exemplifies the unique advantages of the Antioch Midwest Individualized Master of Arts program. Her IMA program design drew on aspects of political science, sociology, and education.

Azuka primarily utilized the theoretical model of optimal psychology developed by Leading Authority Dr. Linda James Myers. Myers also served as her mentor and a course instructor. Azuka explored the “connectedness of everything,” looking at more inclusive approaches to engage people across racial and social class divisions. In the context of critical race theory she investigated the concept of the other, and learned how social constructions of identities obscure decision-making based on power and privilege.

Azuka now holds the position of Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion, & Partnerships at COSI, the Center for Science and Industry, Columbus, Ohio.
