Tunnel of Oppression Committee
The Tunnel of Oppression, sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action, is organized by a student coordinator who selects a committee to help plan and execute the process of designing the Tunnel. The Tunnel rooms are organized by student/club organizations who have volunteered their time and effort for visitors to have this experience.
Student Coordinator is in charge of the creation of the Tunnel. This person works closely with the Director of Multicultural Affairs in regards to its construction. In addition, the coordinator meets with each room committee to make suggestions regarding layout and ways to enhance the visual presentation of their room.
Staff Liaison is a BSC staff person who has been selected to work closely with a room committee. This person will help the group flush out room ideas, answer questions and keep the group on track.
The staff liaisons role is very important in helping the committee:
- Think creatively about how to design an impactful room
- Tackle the research process and access resources
- Delegate responsibilities to committee members
- Establish and maintain a strict timeline for implementation
Volunteer Coordinator is responsible for organizing all the volunteers for the Tunnel. This process generally takes place during spring term.
