|Diversity & Unity (DU) Retreat
From the Fall of 2013, we are building on and transforming our traditional, annual Diversity & Unity (DU-only) Retreat by instead having DU student participate in the statewide CO-LEADS student summit: COlorado Leadership for Equity, Action & Discovering Social justice. While it does not require the same time commitment as the Retreat did, CO-LEADS provides much of the same content, with the larger resources of multiple institutions and the opportunity to network with students from across the state.
CME will sponsor a limited number of DU students to register, paying their registration fee, with the understanding that these students will:
- attend and actively participate in the entire CO-LEADS experience, including a DU-specific wrap-up session at the end of the day (ending by ~4.45pm). (As the event is designed as a complete experience, early arrivals or early departures are not allowed. Plan ahead; not showing up or cancelling last minute for an avoidable reason isn't good leadership.)
- will bring back what they've learned and apply it in their involvements across campus. (The investment of time, money and resources is wasted if not put to use.)
Unlike the Retreat, students may attend CO-LEADS as many years as they wish. We will connect with DU students in advance of the day, to coordinate (optional) group lightrail to/from the event, and with details about the mandatory DU-specific wrap-up after the larger sessions end.
Please see the COLEADS website for more information. DU students should select "sponsored" for their payment option, and enter CME, email@example.com when prompted for sponsor details.
