Providing meaningful support to students.
Intercultural Community Conversation Advocates
Intercultural Community Conversation Facilitators (ICCFs) are student leaders hired by Intercultural Life to partner and co-facilitate conversations of identity and privilege with First-Year Resident Assistants from Campus Living & Community Development in first year living communities. The ICCF program helps first years navigate identity exploration of self and others while serving as a conduit for difficult discourse.
Intercultural Connections Advocates
The ICA Program is committed to providing intentional support for first year students from underrepresented communities specifically in their personal, social and academic transitions at DePauw University. As they prepare to navigate the university during their first year, ICAs aims to serve as a peer resource and support to assist them on their journey.
The Brotherhood provides Black and Latino males a safe communal space to discuss hard hitting topics that disproportionately impact these populations. It also empowers male students to connect with fellow constituents, faculty and staff and community role models with the goal of positively assisting in retention and matriculation of Black and Latino males at DePauw University.
Bias Incident Response Team
The role of the Bias Incident Response Team is to support the university in their current policies regarding harassment and bias incidents. BIRT investigates and respond promptly and appropriately to informational reports, documents, formal or informal meetings regarding identity-based bias incidents on campus and within the greater community against DePauw students.
Student Advisory Boards
Multicultural Student Services (MSS) currently convenes two different advisory boards, the Intercultural Life Advisory Board and Multicultural Student Services Advisory Board. The advisory boards serve as an official entity that provides directions and feedback to Multicultural Student Services and Intercultural Life. These student advisory boards discuss pertinent issues such as retention, campus climate, assessment, programs and initiatives. A minimum of two class representatives serve on the student advisory boards.
