Intercultural Development: Connect

The Intercultural Development (ID) co-curriculum engages everyone at Saint Mary's to build an inclusive community.  Facilitated by trained student ID Leaders, Connect fosters interpersonal communication, identity development, and allyship.


Each month, Intercultural Development (ID) Leaders hold CONNECT sessions in all first-year residence halls aimed at helping students meet others in their community as well as discover elements of their identity they might not have previously thought about.

Each CONNECT session runs approximately 90 minutes and is centered around activities and open dialogue which allow residents to bond and CONNECT with their community. The ID program is a great opportunity for students to ask questions, discuss current issues, and take time out of their busy schedules to reflect. Each session is framed within the concept of “respect,” and we urge all participants to share their stories in a safe environment.

This year, we've revamped Connect! 

In the fall, residents will engage in structured dialogues centered around meaningful activities, such as creating a life map, finding commonalities with others, and recognizing what it means to be an ally. In the spring, Connect 2.0 will give residents the opportunity to choose their own topics regarding pop culture, politics, hall dynamics, campus climate, and more.

Connect 2.0

Your ID Leaders will be holding monthly "Connect 2.0" sessions in your residence hall. Unlike the structured sessions of the fall, you and your hall will get to choose your own topics regarding pop culture, politics, hall dynamics, campus climate, and more.                                                                 

Meet Your 2016-17 ID Leaders!
