|The 2011-12 Emissaries for Graduate Student Diversity.|
The program promotes peer connections between individuals interested in IU graduate programs, especially science, technology, mathematics (STM) disciplines, and current IUB graduate students. Graduate student emissaries dedicate two semesters, and optional summer term, to serving as community-building liaisons between graduate studies and the graduate student body at IUB.
Applicants must be full-time graduate students in a Masters or Ph.D. program at IUB, be in good academic standing, and demonstrate involvement in program, departmental, university or community organizations. Preference will be given to graduate students who are involved in diversity-building activities and programming. An in-person interview is required.
Students must submit the following by 5pm on March 30, 2012, in order to be considered:
- data form ( http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YSQRBSZ );
- a curriculum vitae/resume; and,
- a 1-page essay about past experience with similar initiatives, diversity-building efforts, cultural competency, community involvement or leadership skills.
