Please Come to the Summit Against Racism Volunteer Mixer!

Hi everyone - Planning is underway for next year's Summit Against Racism. Please check out the link below to register for a volunteer mixer in May.


This January, the Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion sponsored the registration for several CMU students to participate in workshops and engage with the local Pittsburgh community on ways to combat racism and promote unity and racial healing throughout the city. I look forward to expanding CMU's presence and role in what will be the Summit's 21st year.


Participating in the Summit will be a major step toward CMU making a meaningful impact for the people of Pittsburgh. I sincerely hope that you consider contributing your time and effort to planning, promoting, and attending if you can.


Please forward the message along to others who you know may be interested in, or could benefit from, getting involved with this city-wide event.


Volunteers are needed for many subcommittees including  outreach, social media, grant writing, opening/closing ceremony, workshops, youth programming, registration, accessibility, food, program book, town hall and more.


To learn about opportunities to get involved and to meet other volunteers, please come to our Volunteer Mixer, happening May 23 at 6:30 at the Union Project.  We'll have refreshments, music, and presentations on the planning committees that need your help!

Pitt Early Head Start - Paid Postition

I’m looking for students who may be interested in doing language translation work and in creating program materials for our Early Head Start program at Pitt’s Office of Child Development.  The languages of need include Nepali, Swahili, Arabic, Spanish, Russian, and French. This would be a paid position.


I appreciate your help in reaching out to interested students for this project.


Thank you,






Hola a todos!


Carnival is almost upon us! Before that though, we have some important announcements for you so take a look. Also, here's a little something to get you through the rest of the week. Hope you enjoy. :)


"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you." - Frida Kahlo



Carne Asada hosted by SALSA (That's Us!): Join SALSA Saturday at 4 PM - 6 PM at the Baker Hall Terrace for a Carne Asada during CMU Carnival! This open event geared towards Alums will allow you the opportunity to network with the LatinX community and it's supporters while gorging on delicious food. Music via student performances and dancing will be in occurrence, too! As the last major event hosted by our SALSA Eboard for the 2017-2018 school year, we'd love to see you there. Check out the event page and let us know if you're going!


If you would like to perform send us an email with what you will be performing and any equipment you may need.

Thursday at 9 Unger Ln 9pm


ALLIES Open Mic Night: CMU ALLIES will be hosting an Open Mic Night on April 26th from 8:00 - 9:30 PM in the CUC Studio Theater. The Open Mic Night is named Breaking the Silence and will take place after the annual Day of Silence event, which they hold in recognition of all the people who have been bullied or harassed because of their orientation or gender identity. That said, the performances need not relate explicitly to LGBTQ+ issues. In fact, they are encouraging performers to focus on the different aspects of their identity (e.g. race/ethnicity, religion, etc.) through various media like spoken word, slam poetry, singing, playing instruments, etc.


Anyone interested in performing at the Open Mic Night (even tentative interest) should fill out the interest form at this link.  Feel free to contact with any questions or concerns.


Medical Spanish StuCo: As the Spanish-speaking population grows in Pittsburgh and across the nation, it is becoming increasingly more important for US healthcare professionals to be comfortable speaking Spanish. This course will combine independent study and interactive in-class activities in order to create clinical settings that will call for your use of Spanish. Our objective is to have students be able to comfortably communicate with Spanish-speaking patients in a culturally sensitive manner. In addition to basic language development, students will learn Latino social-cultural differences, and health disparities that disproportionately and unjustly affect the US Latino population. Check out the poster below.


If you are a pre-health student, a Spanish-speaker, or someone interested in gaining an incredible life skill, this is the StuCo for you!



Head Orientation Counselors would like to hear what we have to say about our orientation experience and what changes we would want to see. Tuesday at 5pm at the Student life conference room 

The conference room is at the back corner of the main floor of Morwood Gardens, in the left corner near the kitchen area.
