'DEIS Impact is not a passive event, it is a deeply interactive festival shaped by our community: you. Whether your involvement is spreading the word and contributing by engaging in conversations at the many events, proposing new and creative events, or joining the leadership team of 'DEIS Impacters you are inextricably a part of the festival.

'DEIS Impacters will:
  • Be responsible for outreach to certain clubs, departments, etc., encouraging them to plan events during ‘DEIS Impact.
  • As a group, make recommendations about which proposals will be part of ‘DI and make funding recommendations.
  • Serve as liaisons to events, working with the club, department or individual organizers to finalize details and plan effective publicity (including off-campus outreach into Waltham).
  • Be the introducer at the event, putting the event in context of the week.
  • As a group, work on assessment of participant learnings during the week, as well as documentation (photos, summaries, quotes from speakers and audience members), and followup.
  • Serve on subcommittees ranging from managing ‘DEIS Impact’s social media accounts to planning how ‘DEIS Impact can leave a lasting impact
  • Some ‘DEIS Impacters may be involved in social media presence, producing a video montage, video interviews, creative marketing, campus engagement, etc.
  • ‘DEIS Impacters are invited to propose their own events!

We need "'DEIS Impacters" – core committee members – to make the big event happen! Being a 'DEIS Impacter will take 2-3 hours per week from September through the end of February. All undergraduates are eligible to apply, from first years to seniors. Students must be available on Tuesday nights from 8-9pm in the fall for DEIS Impacter meetings.
