ULM Sponsors Weekend Workshop in Leadership and Diversity

Student leaders and organization members at the University of Louisiana at Monroe are participating in a program designed to help students better understand how to lead in a diverse student population. The program's purpose is to increase understanding and communication among all students. It is set for this Saturday, October 2 beginning at 10 a.m. in the Student Union Building Auditorium. It is open for any student who is interested in attending.

SALAD (Seeking Alliances through Leadership and Diversity) is a leadership workshop, a communications roundtable, a diversity appreciation seminar, and a public relations think-tank all wrapped into one day. Student leaders from the campus have been invited to participate in the program.

Students will leave the workshop with a better understanding of the differences and similarities of the various student organizations and populations on campus; new relationships with other student leaders; and an ability to articulate the values that all of their organizations share.

The students participating in the program will also work to compile a list of cooperative action items for addressing issues that affect their campus community. A committee - made up of representatives of student leadership - will work throughout the rest of the year to continue good relationships and carry out the SALAD action plan. Students will be charged to make a commitment to working together to promote a positive environment for all students on campus.

A professional facilitator will travel to Monroe to lead this student workshop. For more information on the SALAD workshop, please contact Duke Johnson at 318-342-5287.
