All-Ivy Multicultural Affairs Meeting: REGISTRATION

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.

As outlined in the general schedule, we will start off our day with each institution presenting about institutional structure, relevant offices (mission, vision, organization chart), and scope of programs and resources. The goal is to give participants a better understanding of peer institutions so that subsequent conversations about programs, campus issues, and ways to collaborate can be better contextualized. NOTE: The point person will be sentmore guidelines about this presentation.
This information will help shape roundtable discussions.
