Under1Roof 2014: Make-Up Sessions

Under1Roof is a required program for all incoming first year students in Columbia College and Columbia Engineering. It explores how we individually and collectively create an inclusive community at Columbia University. It provides the framework on how intergroup understanding and community building are achieved through continual engagement and education about the different social identities that all students bring to campus. It is the exciting beginning of a sustained dialogue that we hope will last throughout a student’s education here and beyond.

Your Contact Information
Program Information
In this section, we ask you to please check any and all competencies that you feel are directly addressed through participation in your program. Note that competencies are separated into three categories: "individual", "group", and "societal" leadership.
In hours (half-hour increments are allowed), estimate the amount of time an individual participating in your program would invest (specific to the role you have indicated). Please enter numbers only (ex: enter "2.5" for two and a half hours). Note: For lengthier programs, such as multi-day retreats, please include only time during which participants are engaged in programming.
Program Competencies
In this section, we ask you to please check any and all competencies that you feel are directly addressed through participation in your program. Note that competencies are separated into three categories: "individual", "group", and "societal" leadership.
Program Focus
Imagine that you have a total of 10 points to split between "individual", "group", and "societal". You will divide these points according to the focus of your program (specific to the role you have indicated). For example: if you are filling this form out for participants of a retreat mostly focused on issues of group leadership, but that also includes a couple of sessions on individual leadership styles, you might allot 7 points to group leadership and 3 points to individual leadership. Reviewing your competency selections above may be helpful when allocating these points. Note that only whole numbers are permitted.
