CommonCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Common, a multi-Grammy Award-winning hip hop artist and actor, is participating in a broadcast event sponsored by The W chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success.


The presentation, “The Greatness in You,” will broadcast Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. in the Nissan Auditorium, Parkinson Hall. He will teach attendees how to seek their own directions for success.                

As an actor, Common has portrayed a freed slave, Elam Ferguson, in AMC's historical drama series “Hell on Wheels.” For the past 16 years, he has produced more than nine albums, including “Can I Borrow a Dollar?” and “BE The Dreamer/The Believer and Finding Forever,” a Grammy-nominated collaboration with Kanye West. He also appeared in several movies, including “Smokin' Aces,” “American Gangster,” “Terminator Salvation,” Happy Feet Two” and many more.

He is the author of several books, including “One Day It'll All Make Sense.” In 2007, he launched the “Common Ground Foundation,” an organization dedicated to the developing opportunities for America's urban youth.

“The NSLS is important to me because I want to help in building leaders who can create a better world,” said Quinterra Wright, president of the National Society of Leadership and Success.
The mission of the organization seeks to help people discover and achieve their goals. The Society offers lectures from the nation’s leading presenters and a community where individuals come together and help one another succeed.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
