Student Life Multicultural Center Buck-Identity Workshop Request Form
Hello and thank you for your interest in our Buck-Identity Workshops! Please read all of the below information prior to filling out this form. Please allow one week to hear back from a staff member about your request. If you do not hear anything with this time frame, feel free to e-mail Bowen Marshall ( for any updates.

Due to staff transition and a high demand of workshops, we are unable to guarantee requests made for facilitations for the month of January. Someone will be in touch with you if we are unable to schedule your workshop on the requested dates.

Should you have any questions about the above information or the request form as you complete it, please contact Bowen Marshall (, Associate Director in the Multicultural Center.

General Information
All workshop requests must be submitted at least three weeks in advance of both the preferred and alternative dates. This will give us enough time to secure a facilitator for you. If we are unable to find an available facilitator, we will e-mail you to find a new date and time for your workshop.

All workshops require PowerPoint capability, internet access, and sound. If other accommodations are required (e.g. copies, computer, etc.) the facilitator will inform the requesting party. All equipment should be set up at least 15 minutes prior to the workshop's start time so that the facilitator can pull up any materials on the computer and to ensure starting on time.

Unless otherwise noted, you should expect all workshops to last approximately one hour in length. We are able to tailor the content to fit a 45-minute time frame or to last longer than one hour, but we are unable to fulfill requests made for a time frame that lasts for fewer than 45 minutes.

Details about what each workshop entails and the appropriate audience for each can be found here:

Notes for Students

Resident Advisors/Student Organizations: Our team would be pleased to assist with your next program! We ask that RAs work in pairs for the planning and marketing of each residence hall workshop. Each request form should include the names of all collaborators for the event. Please be sure to include specific information about the program and its location.

Notes for Staff and Faculty
We have experience facilitating in both classroom settings for student audiences and meetings for staff/faculty audiences. We are happy to help with professional development sessions, student organization meetings, or other collaborative efforts. We are able to tailor our presentations and materials to meet your needs.

Since we are student-centered office, please note that students receive priority in our request system. Learning and Development ( within the Office of Human Resources is a great resource for staff and faculty workshops focused on diversity and inclusion. In the event that we cannot accommodate you, we are happy to refer you to them.
