Community Diversity Assistants

Community Diversity Assistants (CDAs) help the Bryn Mawr College community understand and celebrate its diversity across a variety of categories, e.g. race, socioeconomic class, gender identity, sexuality, etc. In the dorms, CDAs act as mediators for conflicts and disputes around issues of diversity, and hold office hours (usually by appointment) to answer any questions that residents might have about issues of diversity on campus. CDAs also hold at least four dorm-wide hangouts per year, which bring the dorm community together to socialize and talk about a particular issue of diversity.

In addition, CDAs organize events and discussions for the larger campus community, celebrating campus vibrancy and tackling more complicated issues that may or may not directly touch our campus.
