Program Overview In this program, staff members will accumulate Diversity Development Initiative Points for each diversity initiative in which they participation. Diversity initiatives, programs and activities sponsored by Hamline University departments, individuals and student organizations may count towards Diversity Development Initiative Points. Diversity initiatives have been separated into four categories based on the type of engagement and participation provided in the initiative. Each category has corresponding units attached to it. Adding the points achieved through participating in staff diversity initiatives will yield a total final unit which places the staff member in one of three achievement level (e.g., bronze, silver, and gold) with corresponding incentives and rewards. In addition to participating in university diversity initiatives, staff members are expected to: Track their participation by completing the Staff Diversity Development Participation Form and submitting it by April 30; and Submit a brief reflective summary that captures learning outcomes and how these relate to staff member’s role and responsibilities at Hamline by April 30. Formal acknowledgement of staff members will be recognized at the Diversity Initiatives End-of-the-Year Celebration Lunch in May 2014.
