Mylonne D. Sullivan
Diversity Affairs Internship Program
Congruent with student development, Diversity Affairs created an internship opportunity for students who show a high degree of interest in diversity, multicultural affairs, pluralism or intercultural affairs. Each summer, one student is selected to work on a full-time basis, and during the academic year the intern supports and maintains the daily operations of tasks related to the position. The Diversity Intern reports to the Director of Diversity Affairs of the College and is responsible for planning at least two major events that will occur during the academic year. Areas of exploration are broad. With guidance and direct assistance, the intern works closely with student organizations, departments and entities to ensure the success of the programs.
Mylonne D. Sullivan is the 2012-2013 Diversity Affairs Intern. She is a junior with a double major in Communication Studies and Criminal Justice. As a first-year intern, she will work with the Director of Diversity Affairs to engage BW faculty, staff, and students to participate in various forms of diversity programs and educational leadership opportunities. She will also maintain the Diversity Reading Circles (academic, administrative and student), which allows faculty members and students to read diversified literature and engage in facilitated dialect. Also, Your Voice, Our Words, is a program created by the previous Diversity Affairs intern. Through this program, Mylonne aims to provide leadership and encouragement to six African American students from Roehm Middle School (Berea, Ohio). She will also be recruiting six Baldwin Wallace students to join her in supplying the young ladies with guidance to continue to pursue education as well as build confidence and self-value.
