Washington College Intercultural Student Overnight Experience

Each April we invite perspective students to join us for the Intercultural Student Overnight Experience! The overnight experience will allow you to experience the social life of Washington College and interact with your future classmates. As students are making their final decision on where to spend the next four years of their academic studies, we hope our program will allow you to ask questions of our staff and students on a personal level.

You will be paired with one of the Office of Intercultural Affairs Student Ambassadors for the evening. The ambassadors will also be available to you during your admissions process. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact Ahyana King, Director of Intercultural Affairs at aking3@washcoll.edu or contact your Washington College admissions counselor.

Talk That Talk

Talk That Talk is a series of gatherings for conversations which address a variety of topics related to issues of identity, culture, faith, gender, sexuality, race, ability, socioeconomic class, and current affairs. All campus community members are invited to join the conversation. The discussions are co-facilitated by a staff/faculty member and an Intercultural student advocate. Talk That Talk gives students, faculty, and staff  a safe space  to share experiences, connect, and when desired develop action plans to create changes that will enhance the office of Intercultural Affairs inits work to create a diverse, equitable, inclusive, intercultural campus.  Fall 2015 Semester gatherings will take place 10/22, 11/5, and 11/19 in The Center For The Study of Black Culture @ The Caroline House from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Safe Space

WC Safe SpaceThe Safe Space Program at Washington College strives to create an inclusive environment for all members of the campus community. Safe Space is a nationally recognized program that provides educational training designed to support and create a network of allies for the Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, and Transgender (LGBT) community on-campus. The Safe Space stickers displayed in offices, workplaces and student rooms provide a visible indication of faculty, staff, and students who have participated in the Safe Space training and gained knowledge about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity in the hopes of improving the campus climate. Through the Safe Space program, members of the community will serve as a resource to the LBGT community and may help those with questions or whom need assistance find the appropriate campus resource.

Participation in the safe space program is voluntary and open to all Washington College faculty, staff, and students.

Our next training will be Spring 2016. For more information please contact the Office of Intercultural Affairs at 410-810-8466.
