APPLY NOW TO BE A DISCRIMINATION ADVISOR FOR 2009-2010!
Deadline: Friday, March 20th
The Discrimination Advisors is a group of students, faculty and staff who work to help to keep Kenyon free of invidious discrimination and welcoming of diversity. Advisors serve as informal resources for students who want to talk about discrimination issues. They are available to listen to complaints, discuss allegations, suggest ways of addressing situations, facilitate discussions (when appropriate), provide information about College policies and procedures, or provide referral to others who can help. In addition, Advisors work on projects designed to keep the Kenyon community informed about discrimination and diversity issues. This includes bringing guest speakers, organizing campus events, conducting research, and maintaining a web presence for the group.
We invite applications from students interested in serving as an Advisor for the 2009-10 academic year. We seek people who have good listening skills, demonstrate good judgment, value diversity and are sensitive to issues of discrimination. If interested, please submit a letter of application to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is Friday, March 20th.
Application letters should be brief (500 words or less) and address the following points:
- why you are interested in the position
- why the issues of discrimination and diversity are of concern to you
- any particular areas of discrimination that are of interest to you
- why you believe you would make a good advisor (e.g. specific skills, interests, or experiences)
- your view of the state of diversity at Kenyon and the area in most need of attention
The current Advisors will evaluate applications and invite selected candidates for interviews at the beginning of April. If you have any questions about the position or application process, please contact a current Advisor or Jason Tanenbaum, Director of Equal Opportunity (x5820, email@example.com).
Thank you for your interest in this important position!
