Alliance Theme Community
DESCRIPTION OF THE COMMUNITY
The purpose of the Alliance TC is to allow students interested in learning more about their own intersecting identities and cultures outside their own the ability to participate in meaningful dialogue, find campus resources that support their identity, and connect with their community.
Students in this community will…
- Explore how their own culture and identity has influenced and been influenced by their life experiences, while gaining an understanding of how these aspects have affected others experiences.
- Learn how to have meaningful and supportive dialogue with others from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
- Be able to identify campus and community resources that allow them to learn more about topics of identity, diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as find support networks in their community to support their own identity development.
- All students in the TC pay a $20 student activity fee each semester that helps pay for the cost of specialty programming.
What makes our theme communities so special is the ability students have to live with those who have similar interest as them – including their Resident Advisor! Using the theme of the community, programs are planned based on student interest, special events, and more. In order to make the most out of your experience, we highly recommend active participation in community activities.
