Providing meaningful support to students.
The Connections Mentoring Program is committed to providing intentional support for first year students of color specifically in their personal, social and academic transitions at DePauw University. As they prepare to navigate the university during their first year, Connections 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.
Multicultural Film Series
The Multicultural Film Series provides a fun, exciting and visual way to look at identity, culture and social justice. Films include, but are not limited to, dramas, documentaries and national features that focus on social and cultural issues. Short discussions are held after each film.
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.
