Diplomats for Diversity

Diplomats for Diversity are current UNG students who engage the campus community in dialogue around social justice, diversity, and equity issues. They are a peer education resource that is available to faculty, staff, and student organizations around campus. Students who become Diplomats for Diversity will enhance their facilitation skills, develop leadership skills, and help create a campus climate where differences are understood and appreciated. They will also become a part of a unique campus resource for students as members (and leaders) of their own semi-autonomous unit within the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs responsible for independent and unique programming that will foster a more welcoming campus environment.

Diplomat Initiatives Include

Town Halls

Once a month during the academic year, the diplomats organize a panel-led town hall discussion around a particular issue that has been in recent news. In December, the Diplomats for Diversity invited guest speaker, Daniel Blackman, to discuss the prevalence of human trafficking in the Metro Atlanta area, as well as measures to prevent its dissemination. In March, the Diplomats held a DACA Forum to inform and engage the campus community on this immigration topic of national concern.

Facilitations and Workshops

The diplomats perform classroom and office facilitations on a variety of topics, including the gender spectrum, the socioeconomic implications of race, how our cultural lens affects our understanding of our environment, and exploring the concept of social privilege. If you can't make it to a class one day, consider having the diplomats lead a discussion and create a safe space with fellow students for frank conversations.
