Freshman AND allies are highly encouraged to apply since this is a great way to test out what it's like to be involved with BDU. Committee descriptions are in the poster below, and you will have the option to choose your top three committee preferences. Read on or reach out to us for questions, to learn more about this program or the project that we'll help you run and fund.
By submitting this application, you will be assigned to one of your top pick committees, and be given funding and mentorship to complete a specific project within the span of the fall semester, as well as the opportunities to help plan and organize BDU initiatives. If you enjoy working with us, you can apply for the same or another committee in the spring.
What are these projects? Every member of every committee has the ability this year to run and host a project of their own design and choice! Projects ideas may include: Creating a new awareness campaign about intersex advocacy on-campus, restructuring the format and speakers of the Queen North Carolina conference, working to establish a formal task force between all affinity organizations, creating a zine or website on a relevant LGBTQ+ topic that you think Duke student should know more about, planning and creating a fundraiser for a local queer organization, and more. If chosen to come onboard, you will have about a month of acclimation, training, and brainstorming with senior members, and then we will be finalizing official project proposals so that we may assign you a mentor within our organization and meet your funding needs, that way your project deliverables can be flawless!
