Because every badass needs a headquarters...

Every hero has training quarters. Harry Potter had Hogwarts. Wonder Woman had Themyscira. Black Panther had Wakanda. And badass moms who do extraordinary things have the Infamous Mothers Campus. And Infamous Mothers University (IMU) is part of that campus. 


Our curriculum is high quality, smart, cutting edge, exclusive but also aware of best practices. It honors the various stories and journeys of the women “who’ve gone through the belly of hell” and are looking to bring something good back to the world in the form of mothering, business, writing…and more. 

We want you to do as little mental acrobatics as possible. That’s why our instructors come from all walks of life, offering life experiences that are relatable and down to earth. Our hope is that our students will see themselves in IMU’s instructors (and vice versa) and be inspired. We’re building a sisterhood of connected, like-minded women to help expand your networks. And we exist to assist you with your growth as you fulfill your dreams. The courses, workshops and retreats offered by IMU are created to be fun, engaging, and are meant to be a part of your transformative journeys with health and wellness, wealth building, caretaking and more. Come get this IMU experience, and begin the work of fulfilling your dreams without apology.

WE'RE WITH YOU, SIS!

Get yo' grit...get yo' grit!

For far too long, Halle has felt dragged by life. She’s been at the mercy of her bills, at the mercy of other people’s stories about her…and at the mercy of her own children. While her face never betrays her age, her insides feel so much older. She’s never been to war, but her body feels battle worn. Her unfulfilled dreams taunt her at night, and the idea of leaving behind a paycheck-to-paycheck legacy frightens her. She wants more for her children…and for herself. 

At one point in life, Halle was full of fire, grit and confidence, but now, she’s unsure of herself. Systems have processed her and taught her the benefits of “going along to get along,” even when doing so doesn’t serve her much. She listens to a lot of gurus and experts, but not seeing herself in them or their case studies makes her skeptical. 

She wonders, “Will what they’re saying actually work for someone like me?” More often than she can count, Halle has tried to share her goals with her mom, cousins and girlfriends, but they always say, “You’re doing too much.” Over time, she learned to keep quiet about them, and eventually, she stopped thinking about them. Sometimes, she wonders if it’s too late to reach for something more. And if she could, will she always feel this alone? 

She thinks about all the microaggressions she has had to deal with in the workplace and revisits all the times she has dealt with being the object of sexism, racism, fatphobia  and mommy shaming. And she decides that regardless of whether she chooses to be a stay-at-home mom, continue on as a professional or make the choice to start a business, she will be the hero in her story, the hero that no one saw coming. What Halle doesn’t know is this: We saw her coming. And we built a whole world to connect with other badasses like her, to inspire women like her, and to assist them with their growth.  You are the hero of your story!

It features 20 stories of caretakers who have both overcome their own personal challenges and are now making a difference in the public sphere today. This coffee table book offers readers an opportunity to experience the lives of "detestable" or "reprehensible" moms from the perspective of the women we love to judge. Filled with stunning photography and provocative stories, it challenges popular perceptions of teen moms, survivors of domestic violence, and baby mamas. It adds complexity to stereotypical stories about mamas who abuse drugs or engage in sex work.

Join my university...I have the theory, practice and life experience to offer you first-class lessons that can take you to new heights.

For over 10 years, I taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a graduate student. As a master's student in the African-American Studies department, I trained under world-class scholars and pioneers of the field. As a PhD student in English, I did the same and more. 

It was under the guidance of these extraordinary thinkers and teachers that I learned how to create curriculum, design research questions, solve problems and teach people from all walks of life.

Close to the end of my graduate program, I realized that I wanted to bring my research, skills and passion to the women I wrote about in my dissertation: Infamous Mothers. I wanted to assist, coach, teach and grow with badass moms who do extraordinary things.  

I created Infamous Mothers University to help them increase their bottom lines, reclaim their health and wellness, tap into their power and build a thriving mothering practice. I created it to offer tools and strategies that can help them transform their businesses and their lives.

If you are one of these women, I created IMU because you deserve this and so much more!

Think you're ready?

Are you ready to defy the odds and do the impossible in your professional life? 
Are you ready to break chains in your personal life?
Are you ready to leverage the life you have to create the life you want?
I created Infamous Mothers University (IMU) for women who want to be the heroes in their own stories. I created it for women to have a safe space to leverage the lives they have to create the lives they want. And I created it so that our women can dream without boundaries.

Our women have gone through the "belly of hell" and are bringing something good back through entrepreneurship, academia, building generational wealth, growing mothering practices and more. They change narratives, expand leadership and mother on their terms.

If you are brave enough to dream bigger and bold enough to pursue the "impossible," we are bad enough to assist you. Through our workshops, classes, retreats and coaching, we will share with you tips, tools and strategies to fulfill your wildest dreams.
-Dr. SAgashus Levingston
Overview

What's an IMU "type"?

IMpreneur

Our courses for IMpreneurs target defiant women 
who work to build impossible businesses, sustainability and unimaginable wealth against the odds, without sacrificing  themselves or their families.

IMprofessional

This programming is designed to help you tear down maternal walls, bust through glass ceilings and accomplish your professional goals. We will help you own your power, push through imposter syndrome and claim your right at any table, while building a life model that honors both your public ambitions and private dreams.

IMpersonal

The IMpersonal track of IMU’s programming offers courses that give women a safe space to explore their questions, concerns and goals around mothering, family, romance and self care. Our approach to personal development is mother/woman-centered, meaning while the rest of the world puts children and men first, we put you first.

The "Make Room" Type

The courses and trainings on this track help both individuals and entities assess their DEI competency; create policies and procedures, as well as implement and maintain programming that addresses traditional DEI issues with a special emphasis on mothers in the workplace.

Featured Courses

It's the year 2027 and 2 million Infamous Mothers have expanded the face of leadership across all industries and broken generational curses worldwide.
