Creating Community Across Areas of Difference
Thea Bowman AHANA and Intercultural Center
Community Building Initiative- This is a new initiative to help build undergraduate student unity across areas of difference AND similarities.
Community Research Program - A year-long program that offers leadership, research, and public policy training for students interested in working with Latino, Asian American, Native American, or African and African Diaspora communities in Massachusetts. Through the program, students have the opportunity to conduct their own independent study under the supervision of a faculty member on issues related to any of the four research interest communities.
Spiritual Engagement and Outreach Initiatives-The SEOI aims to promote the spiritual and faith development of AHANA and multicultural students. We work to increase the awareness of spiritual diversity on campus by providing connections between multi-faith groups and students seeking to further their spiritual and faith formation.
Bowman Advocates for Inclusive Culture - Bowman Advocates for Inclusive Culture is a NEW student leadership program sponsored by the Thea Bowman AHANA and Intercultural Center (BAIC). This program is a year-long commitment and seeks to develop students who have a passion for engaging their peers in dialogue around issues of diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Collectively, the group of leaders will help facilitate the MOSAIC program during Welcome Week, Dialogues on Race (DOR) throughout the year, and Campus of Difference workshops with first-year students.
