Date & Time

November 9, 2021, 1:00 pm2:15 pm – Canceled


The Multicultural Leadership Experience is a collaboration between Campus Life and the Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion & Belonging (i3b).

The purpose of the Multicultural Leadership Experience is to provide a space for students and student leaders who identify with diverse or marginalized backgrounds to discover their own capacity to lead, while also promoting a better understanding of their experiences, issues, and outcomes in navigating their own collegiate careers.

The second session of the mini series will focus on the topic of Exploring Empathy and Giving Grace, specifically on exploring one's emotional intelligence in understanding others, as well as reflecting our own personal needs. Participants will connect their understanding of themselves to their leadership approach by engaging in inter-cultural dialogue and utilizing emotional intelligent capacities. 

Each mini series session will provide participants with:

  • connections to campus and resources
  • meaning-making through reflection and group discussions 
  • leadership learning through the lens of multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion
  • and opportunities to engage with other students across different areas of campus involvement
