Our Three-Pronged Approach
College-wide events offered through this program and the overall undergraduate experience create an environment that celebrates identities, cultures, and communities. Community town halls, trainings, out-of-state trips, conferences, and more help to create student leaders at Douglass and beyond. The Program works closely with other Douglass programs to ensure students are exposed to varied topics led by diverse experts.
The student culture at Douglass is largely influenced by the diverse student body. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program trains 25-45 ambassadors each year to lead conversations with other students on topics such as: Allyship and Privilege, LGBTQ+ Justice, Ableism, Racism, and Mental Health. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Ambassadors are an intricate part of the Program.
The College is committed to dismantling structures that uphold white patriarchal norms. To do this, the committee evaluates programs across the College to ensure equity, develops policies for hiring and retaining a diverse Douglass staff, provides professional development opportunities for staff and students, and works closely with the Dean and college leadership to recommend other necessary changes.
