Diversity Empowerment Education Program (DEEP)
The mission of this new program is to promote student engagement through a social justice lens for underrepresented minority students. Our DEEP Interns from Binghamton University Department of Social Work provide underrepresented students with wrap-around services and support in our residential communities. This reciprocal learning model promotes academic success and student retention with a focus on improving student wellness, advancing intersectional equity and improving community cohesion.
The DEEP Program can:
- Assist residents with affirming and celebrating intersectional identities
- Assist residents with resolving roommate or interpersonal conflict arising out of bias or in general
- Meet with residents in distress or in need of assistance (i.e. adjustment to distance learning, COVID concerns, racial tension)
- Make AOD (alcohol and other drugs) referrals for residents experiencing alcohol or other substance abuse
- Connect residents with resources available on campus
- Work with residents and professional staff to effectively communicate issues and promote community wellness
We work with a new group of interns every year. Check back this summer for our new group of interns and their contact information.
