In honor of the tenth anniversary of Multicultural Affairs, we are compiling stories from students and alumni about their involvement with OMA and the impact its programs, services, and staff have had on their Columbia expreiences.
We are accepting both written and video submissions. Please note the format guidelines for each:
Directions: Host will use this form to record information about how the candidate interacts with the rest of their group or with the host throughout the process. This is an opportunity to record anything that you see that will be helpful for us to know in choosing new staff that may not be captured in the other exercise/interview evaluations.
Instructions: Please check off statements which are descriptive of the candidate’s participation and provide a description of what role the candidate played during the activity. Be Specific! For example, if someone is playing the leader role, do not simply write, “group leader.” It is expected that you explain what behavior they are displaying. Give detailed comments and fill out the form completely.
The ROOTEd team of peer facilitators is trained in issues of power, privilege and oppression and how this translates on a diverse college campus. Facilitators examine their own personal and cultural place in contemporary society through innovative exercises and are trained to be facilitators around diversity issues.
Application is due on December 5, 2014, by 5:00 p.m. EST.
