MoZone Peer Education Program

What Is MoZone?

 

MoZone is a diversity peer education pilot program led by students and aimed at groups/individuals interested in getting hands-on training, participating in interactive dialogues, and receiving practical and timely materials related to diversity and inclusion. The goal is to equip students with both the theoretical and practical tools to learn how to exist and thrive (as both a member and an ally) in diverse communities. The first two content areas in development for the 15-16 academic year will be on Race/Ethnicity and Gender Identity.

Our Mission is to increase awareness and shared language about issues of diversity and social justice within the Mount Holyoke College community.

Our Goal is to provide students with tools and knowledge about the available resources on the Mount Holyoke Campus and wider community, a shared understanding of difference and diversity of experience at our school, and a space where students can engage in difficult conversations about issues of diversity and social justice.

Our Purpose is to create and circulate a social justice education curriculum, facilitated by trained student leaders and educators. We deliver 2-hour modules on a particular topic at the request of the various offices and departments on campus a couple of times a semester.
