On Friday, July 18, 2014, Columbia's Office of Multicultural Affairs is hosting an All-Ivy meeting of colleagues from offices focused on undergraduate diversity, social justice, identity development, and inclusion. These offices include, but are not limited to, multicultural and intercultural centers, LGBTQA centers, women's centers, international student programming and transitional support offices, and affinity-focused offices/positions.
The intent of this meeting is to create a network across the Ivies of administrators from offices focused on undergraduate diversity, social justice, identity development, and inclusion. Through this network, we hope to create better understanding among our institutions, share best practices, collaborate on relevant projects/programming, strategize on shared trends and issues on our campuses, and serve as continual resources to each other.
On the preceding day, Thursday, July 17th, we are utilizing this platform for the national iCount project to present and work with our institutions on data disaggregation in assessment, particularly for Asian Pacific Islander students as it relates to dispelling the model minority myth. The movement for data disaggregation more generally is especially important for institutions and our offices to better nuance programming, resources, and advocacy. This step of iCount is to specifically focus on undergraduate students in the Ivies.
