Want to make a difference at your school?
The ACT program can help.

The Diversity Center’s flagship program, ACT – Action and Awareness for Change Teams, is a comprehensive in-school program that meets monthly with students to talk about different “isms” (racism, ableism, sexism, classism, etc.) and how these systems intersect.

  • ACT is designed for groups of up to 30 students in order for the Diversity Center staff to build safe and transparent relationships with students
  • Each program begins with a session on building common language around general diversity topics, continues with specific sessions on an aspect of diversity, and ends with a conversation on the action oriented question "now what?"
  • Teams meet to plan events for their school and tackle the issues that are most important in their community
  • ACT schools attend workshops and events with students from other schools at The Diversity Center Fall and Spring conferences and retreats
  • The Diversity Center offers ACT Year Two and Year Three, which expand from the Year One sessions onto topics such as religion, heterosexism, ageism, body image, culture, and immigration
