About the Initiative
The Memorial Union Leadership Team has made a commitment to develop into a multicultural, socially just organization, which strives to achieve inclusivity both in interpersonal relations and in organizational processes. This vision of a multicultural organization is one in which there is value placed on the full and equal participation of all of its members.
In the coming year, we will be doing self-evaluation, gathering input, and listening to concerns so that we can collectively define community and how we want to create it together. We will then build a plan integrating professional development opportunities, yearly training for student staff, and adjustments to the facilities, programs, and infrastructure of the organization as needed.
Do you have feedback on the initiative or on how the MU organization is doing when it comes to creating an inclusive community? Do you have experience or an area of expertise you would like to share with the MU organization? Do you have suggestions for professional development topics you would like to participate in? Would you like to get to know Becky over coffee?
Email, call, set up a meeting, or just stop by my cubicle in MU 103—I would love to hear from you!
