Doing Groundwork facilitators are a small cohort of students, faculty and staff who work toward a campus community that embraces difference and the unique experiences that everyone inherently possesses. During a two-day, overnight retreat and training weekend, participants will engage in dialogue centered on topics of diversity and inclusion. Upon completion of the training, facilitators will design and facilitate workshops and presentations that can be requested by faculty, staff, and student groups. 2016-17 Doing Groundwork facilitator applications will be open September 2016. The program seeks students, faculty, and staff who demonstrate interest in equity, social justice, and social change. Specific to students, Doing Groundwork looks for:
- Registered Muhlenberg undergraduates during Fall and Spring semesters
- Ability to commit 8-10 hours a semester to leading workshops and taking part in regular trainings
- Solid written and verbal communication skills
- Ability to work independently and take initiative
