WesDEF application deadline extended

WesDEF, the Wesleyan Diversity Education Facilitation Program, has extended its application deadline to Sunday, Dec. 15 at 5:00 PM!

We are a student group that leads anti-oppression conversation workshops in first-year dorms. WesDEFs train throughout the year for their roles as community facilitators and educators. We are looking for facilitators to join the group for the spring semester.

For an application or for more info, email thewesdefs@gmail.

    this is 10:27and i do appreciate that wesleyan actually does have those resources. i just think its really ridiculous to say that the straight white men are oppressed and their history is at any risk of disappearing from the curriculum. and that these straight white men feel a need to take over any place that does not cater completely to their interests.

    and yet you fail to mention entire departments devoted to courses that explicitly don’t “deal solely with European and western history”. wesleyan has one of the most progressive course offerings of any college, why attack this facet of the school?

    oh shut the fuck up. the straight white men already control the world. yet its never enough… this whole society is based on expansion and colonization and taking over any area that remains free (even if its as half assed and insignificant as wesleyan)and just as a random point, 16 of the courses in the history department this semester (out of 42) deal solely with european and western history. (the others are not solely about western history, but likely have a strong focus on it, such as “science and technology policy”)(props to the straight white men who arent assholes and actually work to fight oppression)

    Ew, do we honestly need MORE conversations about diversity at this school. My goodness. Enough is enough. The straight white men really need to take over and reclaim the university. Lest Shakespeare and American history and heterosexuality disappear entirely from our curriculum.
