The Multicultural Leadership Experience (MLE) is a collaboration between Campus Life and the Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion & Belonging. The purpose of MLE is to provide a space for students and student leaders who identify with culturally, racially and ethnically diverse or marginalized backgrounds to discover their own capacity to lead, while also promoting a better understanding of their experiences, challenges, and outcomes in navigating their own collegiate careers.
The MLE Mini-Series will include three different sessions that you are welcome to register for. You have the option to register for one, some, or all of the sessions being offered. Each session will provide participants with:
- connections to campus and resources
- meaning-making through reflection and group discussions
- leadership learning through the lens of multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion
- opportunities to engage with other students across different areas of campus involvement
The following are the sessions that are being offered for the fall 2020 term:
Tuesday, Sep. 22 @ 3pm - 4pm
This session focuses on self-awareness and identity development. Participants will connect their understanding of themselves to their leadership approach.
Wednesday, Oct. 14 @ 12pm - 1pm
This session focuses on otherness and inclusivity. Participants will connect their values and beliefs to their approach with relationships, building teams, and fostering a sense of belonging.
Thursday, Nov. 12 @ 6pm - 7pm
This session focuses on context, socialization, and creating change. Participants will connect the Social Change wheel to their approach in creating the positive impact they wish to see, while also identifying systems or barriers in place that may need to be challenged.
To participate in the MLE Mini-Series, you must select the session(s) you wish to attend. Once registered, you will be expected to attend the session(s) you signed up for. If you are no longer able to attend, please notify a MLE Planning Committee Co-Chair. To register, visit: tinyurl.com/mle2020
