Addressing Cultural Issues on Campus: Gear Up University of Arizona

TruthSarita trained 30 college students at the University of Arizona to facilitate activities and conversations with incoming first year students about cultural issues on campus.

Working with Tucson GEAR UP, TruthSarita designed and led a facilitator training for 30 college students.  These students then led a day long event for GEAR UP’s incoming first year students to help them transition to college life amidst cultural issues that students might experience.  TruthSarita worked with GEAR UP staff to design and implement the day long event which included a panel of college students, problem solving scenarios, and education and access to culturally relevant resources.
