The Diversity Center

What are dAdvocates?

Diversity Advocates are leaders who create their experience of what “Diversity” means to them. Through working with their supervisor, other Diversity Advocates, and other campus partners, Diversity Advocates share their passions (social justice, diversity, privilege, etc) with the PLU community. It offers students with demonstrated leadership experiences the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, promote engagement and leadership among their peers and develop collegial relationships with faculty and staff. Advocates design, implement and assess programs and help to connect emerging leaders with opportunities throughout the campus.
