News for Faculty

The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs (OSEMA) will be offering students an opportunity to volunteer in Toronto, Ontario, as part of the 2016 Alternative Fall Break program, and we are seeking a faculty or staff adviser to accompany the group on the trip. 

Students will be volunteering with the organization Sistering, which offers practical and emotional support through programs that enable women to take greater control over their lives. Guided by the principles of Anti-Racism/Anti-Oppression, Sistering works to change social conditions which endanger women’s welfare.

Advisers help manage the group's budget and itinerary, share in the driving, and help facilitate decision-making during the trip. Advisers travel free of charge on all Alternative Break trips.
