a professional development opportunity for students, faculty & staff
INFO FOR FACULTY/STAFF:
INFO FOR STUDENTS:

Interested in engaging in conversation with students about various aspects of identity?! Sign up to be a part of Residential Living's new initiative, platED! platED is a discussion between students and a faculty/staff member over a meal that takes place within a residence hall on campus. Residential Living helps pair faculty and staff members with a group of students who are interested in discussing a D7 topic (Religion/Spirituality, Race/Nationality/Ethnicity, Socioeconomic Status, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Body Image, Ability, and Current Topics)

Chosen faculty and staff members will receive notice 1 week prior of their placement. They will work with the student who filled out the application to coordinate which residence hall platED will be held. Show up, eat some food, and discuss important topics! 

SUBMIT THE INTEREST FORM HERE.

platED is dedicated to maintaining and building an inclusive environment for the residential community through discussions surrounding issues of diversity, identity and social justice within their residence halls and spaces.  Up to 8 participants have the opportunity to engage in these conversations with one the D7 topics or a current over a meal in one of our residential spaces on campus with a faculty or staff member. 

You can apply for a platED event with at least two weeks in advance notice of the proposed platED event. By filling out this application you will be serving as the main contact to work with your RA to locate space, pick up food once it is delivered, coordinate with faculty/staff to find building location, return itemized receipt to Jillian Sitjar's mailbox in Harbin 100, and fill out the assessment form following the event.
