WHAT IS GATORSHIP?
Gatorship is a unique social justice education program that uses peer-to-peer facilitation and intergroup dialogue to engage students in conversations about identity and social justice. Gatorship guides students to connect their lived experiences and the experiences of their peers to larger social systems.
Through intensive training, the program provides Gatorship staff (Directors and Assistant Directors) with a solid foundation on social justice education, helps them develop emotional intelligence, and teaches them the skills needed to facilitate dialogue across difference. The program culminates in 4 off-campus weekend retreats during the Spring semester offered to the wider campus community. During the retreats, participants learn about social justice, social identity, and the diverse backgrounds and identities of their peers through interactive presentations, activities, and facilitated dialogue led by Gatorship staff.
Gatorship’s mission is to build a more inclusive campus community one gator at a time by providing foundational social justice education, facilitating dialogue across difference, and introducing students to the knowledge, skill set, and resources needed to become change agents within the University of Florida and beyond.
Participant Applications are open to all UF students and are available in the Fall.
Assistant Director Application are open to past Gatorship participants and are available in the Spring.
