Recruiting for Cross Cultural Leadership Retreat


Contributed by Kelly Stevens

The third annual Cross Cultural Leadership Retreat for Ithaca College students will be held on November 5-7, 2004.

Your assistance in recruiting students to apply would be greatly appreciated. Presented by the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, this two-and-one-half-day retreat presents the opportunity to explore various aspects of diversity and their relationship to leadership. During the retreat, the entire group will participate in a series of educational sessions and discuss issues as a large group, as well as in smaller, informal conversations. Transportation, meals, lodging, and participant materials are provided at no cost to the participant.

Interested students should complete the application and submit it by 5:00 p.m. on October 1, 2004 to be considered for participation. Applications are available online as well as in the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement.

Please understand that we are seeking students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and that this program is open to all Ithaca College students regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, and physical or learning ability. As one past participant noted last year, "Everyone has a cultural identity. At first, I wondered why some people were chosen. I soon understood."

To make it easy for you to share information electronically or if you would like a promotional kit about the program, please contact Kelly Stevens (274-3222) in the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement. Thank you for taking the time to help support this meaningful program.
