Georgia State University will hire six students for the coming academic year titled “multicultural ambassadors” and tasked with educating their fellow students on diversity and oppression.

The Multicultural Competence and Peer Education (MAP) Ambassadors will educate the “community in multicultural competence, allowing them to explore the world through a more progressive perspective,” the job description says. They will work with the Multicultural House to put on better and more frequent workshops, discussion forums, and inclusive programming.

Some of the workshops the ambassadors will host include “Game of Oppression,” “Safe Zone,” “Diversity 101,” and “Cross the Line.” The “Safe Zone” program will seek to “enhance and maintain culturally competent and supportive environments” for gender and sexual minorities as well as provide a network of support, and will tolerate no bigotry or discrimination of any kind per its description.

“Cross the Line” will try to help participants “understand the effects of prejudice, ridicule, teasing and bullying,” while the “Game of Oppression” will seek to bring “enlightenment” to its participants. For each workshop, the description also lists whether the audience risk level is low, medium, or high.

The university will give the MAP ambassadors $100 each month for the 12 hours of work they must complete during that time. The university plans to keep the program operating continuously for the foreseeable future according to Campus Reform, thus the annual expense would total $7,200 which is significantly more than it costs for an in-state student to attend the school.
