The Multicultural Life and Diversity Office would like to invite all students returning for the Fall 2017 semester to apply to attend our Annual Diversity Retreat. The purpose of the retreat is to help students gain an understanding of: (1) their leadership style, (2) the role of diversity in leadership, (3) the value of diversity, equity, civility, access, and inclusion in their educational experience, (4) the value of team building and teamwork in leadership development, and (5) working with people different than themselves as a key to achieving goals. The retreat will be held at Raquette Lake, NY. The retreat is also free to attend for all applicants who are accepted. We cover the cost for travel, lodging, all workshops/activities, including the ropes course, and all meals.
