Description of Position: The position encompasses your role of representing diversity as a whole in the Drake University community.

This position represents many of the underrepresented groups on campus, including multicultural (race, ethnicity, national origin) and other underrepresented groups (sexual orientation, gender, disability) in the Student Body. Timeline:  Friday, Friday 10th, 5:00 PM- Applications for DIS positions are due.  Friday, February 17th, 2:00 PM- Remaining applicants for Diversity Interest Senators meet with the Diversity Interest Convention.
