WHAT IS GATORSHIP?
Gatorship is a co-curricular intergroup dialogue and social justice education program that uses peer-to-peer facilitation to engage students in dialogue about identity and social justice to help them connect their lived experiences and that of their peers to larger social systems.
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 providing students with resources and opportunities to become change agents within the University of Florida and beyond.
