Multicultural Leadership Experience Community
8th Floor Pittman Hall - Starting Fall 2018
Multicultural Leadership Experience Floor is an intentional living-learning community connected with a Diversity and Community Involvement and Campus Life program experience to grow as a leader intrapersonally.
Through guided reflection and dialogue, identity and values exploration, and peer education, this program creates an activities based learning environment that challenges each student to broaden and deepen one’s ability to understand multiculturalism and ethical leadership to influence positive social change.
This program is designed to be nonhierarchical; Students should come to understand that:
(1) Leadership is collaborative
(2) Leadership must include commitment to social justice
(3) Leadership is based on values
(4) Leadership is NOT solely reserved for individuals holding leadership positions
(5) Leadership is about positive change.
You must apply to the MLE program to join the MLE Community. For more info and to apply to the program: http://www.emich.edu/cma/MLE.php
