DIAP Student Reps Needed
Attn: All VA Concentrators
This year our department will be continuing the work of DIAP (Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan). We are looking for students who are interested in working with Theresa Ganz, Winnie Gier, Paul Myoda, Kristine Newson, and RaMell Ross on DIAP initiatives for 2018-19. This would be a one-year commitment, and the committee meets once per month, lunch provided. 
Our focus this year will be on furthering DIAP goals particularly in the areas of faculty hiring and establishing a DIAP student grant. Student feedback is essential to the process. More information and submission process here.
