Previous Years

Below are discussion guides, findings, and initiatives from previous years. We post the discussion guides in order to:

  • to give prospective participants and facilitators a taste of the sort of discussions we hold. While we create a new guide each year, we do reuse some activities and probes. Our suggestion? Only look if you’re on the fence about whether you want to participate. If you know you’re in, hold out and experience the new discussion guide fresh.
  • to give other campus organizations ideas about an idea of how we work. If you’d like to collaborate with us, contact us at [email protected]
  • to give students at other institutions an example of what we’ve done for inspiration. Feel free to steal our good ideas and please let us know what you’ve done better.

They aren’t up as a model of perfection; we know there’s a lot more that could be done. They aren’t up as a promise; although the format remains similar, every year is different.

We post the findings for members of the Bowdoin community only. There’s good and bad in them, and we feel that you can only understand them with the context that comes with being a Bowdoin student. The password is the name of everybody’s favorite card-swiper at Moulton; if you want more of a hint, email us from your Bowdoin email at [email protected]. And get to know her.
