We aspire to build a diverse, critical and dedicated student staff motivated to build community across our differences. 

Are you curious about the real work it takes to build a more equal and just world? Are you passionate about bringing people together and questioning social norms? Are you wanting to take your academic learning out of the classroom and into real world discussion? Then the ICA position might be the job for you!


The application to become an Intercultural Aide (ICA) for the 2020–2021 academic year is now closed.

Stay tuned for the 2021-2022 application this November.

Our Core Values

  • Integrity & Truthfulness
    • We strive to match our words with our actions. 
    • Like a garden, we envision a community where individuals are growing into their unique selves, while still a part of something larger than themselves.
  • Humility & Curiosity
    • We are committed to growing over the long term, and choose to see others in a journey of long-term growth.
    • We are humble team members. We are curious about the way others see and understand things, and look for ways to share our learning.
  • Courage & Perseverance
    • We are willing to look deeper and farther than what is popular or in demand. We question social norms. 
    • We are willing to do things that are uncomfortable. We are willing to do what we think is right, even if the people around us are not.
  • Boundaries & Personal Responsibility
    • We take responsibility for our physical and mental health. We practice saying “yes” and “no” to create a balance between personal and collective wellbeing.
  • Resourcefulness & Willingness to Ask for Help
    • We look for ways we can work together. We accept that difficult things don’t have to be done alone and it’s okay to ask for help.
    • We continuously work to gain a richer understanding of the world. We invoke multiple sources, experiences and fields of study into our understanding of how to progress.

How to prepare

  • Attend weekly roundtable discussions (RTDs) in any of the five neighborhoods on campus.
  • Get involved in community building on campus and locally.
  • Build a relationship with the student Intercultural Aide (ICA) in your neighborhood.
  • Learn about a culture that is different from your own!
