Seventy-three students, staff and faculty participated in the retreat held at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center in Fergus Falls, MN on January 26-28, 2001. The retreat site provided the perfect atmosphere for concentrated learning and deep discussions. The retreat was funded by a variety of offices and programs on the University of Minnesota Morris campus. Contributions came from the Campus of Difference, Commission on Women, Student Organization Leaders Network, Minority Student Programs, Chancellor and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Student Counseling, Residential Life, Diversity Peer Educators, Morris Campus Student Association, and the Alumni Association. This collaborative campus effort produced a quality experience for the retreat participants and facilitators. The comments from the retreat evaluations are overwhelmingly positive. Below is a selection of comments from the seventeen pages of typed evaluation responses. I’m from a 100% white, straight community with traditional views of family roles. I’ve long thought this suspect, but it wasn’t until now that I’ve found out to what extent. Incredibly amazing. Definitely a turning point in my life, a new awakening. Not that I was ignorant of these issues, but the perspective & insight I’ve gained is priceless. Thank you. It is so important for us to understand each other at UMM. The purpose of UMM is education outside the classroom as well as inside. Insight to life that could not be given in any other setting. I learned things faster and more in depth that you could in real life. Could take a lot of risks. I enjoyed hearing the many different opinions and discussing those differences in a safe and productive environment. I felt the focus was well balanced on all different issues. I soaked up a lot of opinions and facts that I’m trying to get together in my head. All of the discussions provided vast amounts of information that I would not have access to otherwise. I learned a lot about my own prejudices. Overwhelming at times, but so good for me to move beyond being so naяve. The atmosphere felt so safe, it seemed as if people never stopped talking. I felt that I could voice my opinion, and even when I did mess up and use a derogatory term, I didn’t feel penalized when it was brought to my attention. I’m usually very reserved in doing anything like speaking in front of people. I’ve seriously never felt more comfortable in front of a large group of people. My ability to communicate and meet new people has grown so much. I’m so grateful. People were real, they were honest. I was forced to uncover my own prejudices and bias. Very valuable information. I am still so overwhelmed with everything that I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this experience was. I think the fact that an English major is speechless says it all, though. I’ve gotten to know some great leaders whom I would feel comfortable talking with. Any hesitancy to join groups before has disappeared. I know that I will be working with a variety of people and I want to be able to work well with them. This offered me an opportunity to learn how to do that. Hearing personal stories made me more sensitive and attuned to the feelings of others. I never realized before this year how prevalent racism is. I thought that it had died out. THIS OUGHT TO BE A GRADUATION REQUIREMENT! I understand that this is logistically impossible, but I also feel that FYS may not be adequate. I will be more sensitive to the feelings of others. I will be more aware of my actions of prejudice, no matter how subtle they may seem. I will try not to be hypocritical with my thoughts as compared to my actions. I think it was a good experience that EVERYONE can benefit from. Changes recommended by participants (as written on the evaluations): A cry break! Or multiple cry breaks. Go more in-depth for example in the bias/prejudice discussion, I was able to identify my biases towards other leaders but would have liked to discuss how to go beyond some of those. Include a larger number of faculty in the retreat. Have more small group sessions with a change of group members so different perspectives are available. Make the retreat longer!!( In addition to the written evaluation comments, each participant was asked to rate the following statements on a one to six scale, one equaling "strongly agree" and six equaling "strongly disagree." In the following calculations, all of the ratings of one through three were considered to be positive, or "agree" responses. 98% agreed that the retreat was valuable. 98% agreed that the retreat provided them with new knowledge and useful information. 96% agreed that the retreat created a safe atmosphere/process for structured dialogue and learning at a deeper level. 96% agreed that the retreat explored the realities of prejudice, bigotry, privilege, and racism. 100% agreed that the retreat better prepared them to work with individuals of different cultural backgrounds both on campus and in the larger society. 94% agreed that because of this experience my attitude toward person of other cultures became more accepting and positive. 94% agreed that the retreat empowered student leaders to take action. 98% agreed that the small group facilitators were well prepared, thorough, and effective. 96% agreed that the large group facilitators were prepared, thorough, and effective. 100% agreed that they would recommend the retreat to other UMM students. The Vision Committee believes that as a result of the three Multicultural Student Leadership Retreats (1999-2001), the campus climate has changed for the better. Students often return with increased enthusiasm and a heightened awareness to diversity issues on campus. They use each other as resources as they make efforts to step out of their "comfort zones" and make changes on campus. Past participants have created a documentary about campus race relations, made efforts to start a new student organization, attended meetings of other student organizations, worked on collaborative projects, written articles and encouraged their peers to see the many facets of diversity. The quality of the program and the impact it has had on the campus has given the retreat a reputation for being worthwhile and even life changing. The retreat was coordinated by the Campus of Difference Multicultural Student Leadership Retreat Vision Committee whose members are Kate VanSickle, Retreat Coordinator; Rose Torres, Morris Administrative Intern; Mike Miller, MSP Coordinator of Cultural Programs; Loreen Olson, Speech Faculty; and students Irma Salazar, Andy Wilson and Kelley Awde. A preliminary budget accounting is attached. The Vision Committee thanks all the supporting offices; organizations; and programs whose support makes the Multicultural Student Leadership Retreat a reality. 0123XZab  Ы Ь P Q ђ ѓ g h Ѓ Є 12rгдklчш./‰Šпр*+–іячянчлзззззззгЫЧЧЧЧЧЧз5>*5>*OJQJ jJ№5>*H* jў№CJ OJQJ>*CJ OJQJ CJ OJQJ jќ№CJ OJQJ(34PQab Ь Q ѓ h Є ј _ ˆ б  И ЋЯйbWГ@§§§§§§јјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјјј & F34PQab Ь Q ѓ h Є ј _ ˆ б  И ЋЯйbWГ@Z[\ЁЧ}А34ќі№ъфоивЬЦРКДЎЈЂœ–Š„~xrlf`                                                                          %Z[\ЁЧ}А34yzЄЅњћqrгдklчш./‰Šњјјјњњњњјјјѓјѓјѓјюшѓшѓшѓшѓш„„ & F & F & F4yzЄЅњћqrгдklчш./‰Šпр)*+fgђѓ”•–ќі№щчсчлчечЯчЩчУч                           Šпр)*+fgђѓ”•–њєњђьъъъъъъъ„h„˜ў„„ & F €Аа/ Ар=!А€"А€#€$€%А|,, йќџџƒ c yg(ќ,,и(d'` [4@ёџ4NormalCJOJPJQJmH <A@ђџЁ<Default Paragraph FontNC@ђNBody Text Indent „h„˜ў5>*OJPJQJ–8"8!џџ џџ џџГ P––Š–4–"№њntОТ˜ˆІЊаЋ Л Н Э Ю  Ѕ Џ и ЁЌЛОЦ}˜ŸЏ/12˜џџ StAct15-1<Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:AutoRecovery save of retreat ev StAct15-1<Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:AutoRecovery save of retreat ev StAct15-1<Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:AutoRecovery save of retreat ev StAct15-1<Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:AutoRecovery save of retreat ev StAct15-1<Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:AutoRecovery save of retreat ev StAct15-1dCampus of Difference:Multicultural Student Retreat:MSLR 3-2001:Evaluations:retreat evaluation report StAct15-1dCampus of Difference:Multicultural Student Retreat:MSLR 3-2001:Evaluations:retreat evaluation report StAct15-1/Macintosh HD:Temporary Items:Word Work File A 4 StAct15-1dCampus of Difference:Multicultural Student Retreat:MSLR 3-2001:Evaluations:retreat evaluation report StAct15-1&Macintosh HD:Desktop Folder:mslrreport џџџџџџџџ џ џ џ џ џ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(=№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ž№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№ „h„˜ўЦhOJQJo(ќ№„h„˜ўЦhCJOJQJo(-№  џџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџ џ@€ ixЦf–@@ GTimes New Roman5€Symbol3 Arial9 €Webdings9Capitals;€Wingdings3Times;Helvetica7 Verdana"qˆаhw;V†w;V†ЖCS†‘X +q$ЅРДД€>0dћ,џџR- I m from a 100% white, straight community with traditional views of family roles StAct15-1 StAct15-1ўџ р…ŸђљOhЋ‘+'Гй0М˜є 0 DP l x „ œЄЌД'S- Iеm from a 100% white, straight community with traditional views of family rolesi Iе StAct15-1 atAcNormal- StAct15-1 a2AcMicrosoft Word 8.0h@Œ†G@МЅ„ ЈР@к;ZƒяР@к;ZƒяР‘Xўџ еЭеœ.“—+,љЎDеЭеœ.“—+,љЎ \ hpœЄЌД МФЬд м ;'"Student Activities-U of M, Morrist+ ћb S- Iеm from a 100% white, straight community with traditional views of family roles Title˜ 6> _PID_GUID'AN{03A4F181-0BC2-11D5-B185-0050E46E627E} ўџџџ !"#$%&'ўџџџ)*+,-./ўџџџ1234567ўџџџ§џџџ:ўџџџўџџџўџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџRoot Entryџџџџџџџџ РF”Q}YяР<€1TableџџџџџџџџџџџџNWordDocumentџџџџџџџџž8SummaryInformation(џџџџ(DocumentSummaryInformation8џџџџџџџџџџџџ0CompObjџџџџXObjectPoolџџџџџџџџџџџџ”Q}YяР”Q}YяРџџџџџџџџџџџџўџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџџўџџџџџ РFMicrosoft Word DocumentўџџџNB6WWord.Document.8
