Queer Awareness Month (QuAM) Co-Chair Application!

The CC/SEAS Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) and the Office of Student Life | Diversity Initiatives at Barnard College are currently accepting applications for 2014 Queer Awareness Month (QuAM) Committee. We are looking for a Co-Chair team of three (3) students who are interested and enthusiastic about contributing their ideas, creativity & time for the development of QuAM. Each team MUST consist of a member from Columbia College, Barnard College and the School of General Studies.


When choosing your Co-Chair team, please consider - the leadership and organizational styles of your other co-chairs - the vision each co-chair has for the month - diverse representation of student group involvement (and no student group involvement is fine too) The QuAM Co-Chairs will be appointed by the QuAM advisors and all other positions (including Treasurer) are selected through general review process. Co-Chairs are required to be in (or near) the city this summer for regularly scheduled planning meetings with the advisory group.

Applications must be received by Friday April 25th at 12 noon to be considered—applications can be found here: www.tinyurl.com/quam2014.
