RESSTAFF CLASS ALA 421: CREATING INCLUSIVE COMMUNITIES

Goals and Purpose

Residence Staff at Michigan work with residents to build, develop, and nurture a supportive and stimulating multicultural community. This course will provide you with the foundations, both intellectual and social, to work toward this goal using readings, large group presentations, classroom exercises, and practical experiences. The information you will take away from this course will be with you for the rest of your life; no matter what work you do or where you live. The following five areas highlight the emphasis of the class:

Identity development
Building inclusive communities
The role of power and privilege in intergroup relations
Being an ally for all residents
Facilitating one on one interactions, group dynamics, and community-building
