What You Need To Know

Diversity facilitating requires a year-long commitment. In addition to your duties during Advisor Training and O-Week, you are required to participate in the following:

  1. Attend "Dialogues on Diversity" each Friday and facilitate at least one dialogue a semester.
  2. Attend monthly Diversity Facilitator meetings.
  3. Introduce yourself (and your partner) to your O-Week College leadership (Magisters & President) to discuss possible goals/activities for the year.
  4. Be an active, participatory member of your college's Diversity Council/Committee.
  5. Work with your college to provide programs on issues of diversity.
  6. Be available, as needed, to address issues/concerns as they arise.
  7. Be a visible and vocal diversity advocate in your residential college and everyday life.
  8. Provide diversity workshops "on-demand" (e.g. Spring Orientation, college requests, etc.)
  9. Assist in interviewing the next round of Diversity Facilitators.
  10. Attend all meetings and respond to all communications in a timely manner.
  11. Be a vigilant ally to students from historically underrepresented communities.

**Please note, involvement in O-Week requires a minimum 2.5 GPA.**

Diversity Facilitators continue promoting campus unity and respect for diversity throughout the year, in part, via the “Dialogues on Diversity” series. These open, campus-wide discussions are held on Fridays at 12:00 PM in Miner Lounge (unless noted otherwise) and cover a variety of cultural and social issues. Facilitators may program in their college and are available to address campus concerns as needed.

Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for information on the weekly discussion topics.
