and April 6. Don't miss out on your chance to host one of this semester's
dinners. This program connects current UF students with alumni and helps
personalize the University of Florida experience for today's students. For
this event, alumni in Gainesville open their homes to students for small
dinner parties, bringing these "strangers" together in a warm, friendly
environment for good food, conversation and Gator camaraderie. If you are an
alumnus living in Gainesville and are interested in being a part of this
program, contact Michelle Lovell at (352) 392-1667. (Last semester several
honors students I know did this and had an enjoyable evening. SKD)

2.  APPLY TO BELONG TO THE WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP COUNCIL: Do you want to be a
leader?  Do you want to make a difference in the lives of UF women?  If so,

Council.  Be a part of an extraordinary group of UF undergraduate woman
leaders and put on fantastic programs, including the Women's Leadership
Conference, Women's History Month, and A.R.T (Artistic Reflections for

3. HIGH SCHOOL SPRING BREAK "ARTS CAMP"
ARTES and other National ARTS chapters (including
Harvard and Columbia Universities) are coordinating
the first Spring Break Arts Camp for over 100
underprivileged Ocala elementary and middle school age
students!  This is an incredible opportunity for
students to be immersed in art, dance, music, acting,
communications....at NO cost to them or their
families!
We need volunteers and counselors to be with the
students:
(in Ocala) 7:30am-2pm, (Mon) 3/24- (Thurs)3/27
(in Ocala)7:30am-4pm, (at UF) 5pm-9pm (Fri) 3/28
You don't have to be available the entire blocks.
Even if you can only contribute an hour, that's great!
 We can also provide you with rides to and from Ocala.
If you can help, please contact Marcia at [log in to unmask]

4. BLACK STUDENT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE: Black Student Leadership Conference
It is with great pleasure that we inform you that the Institute of Black
Culture will be partnering with the General Electric Corporation in
efforts to sponsor a Black Student Leadership Conference that will be held
on
March  21-22, at the Double Tree Hotel. The theme for this first annual
conference  will be "Ubuntu 2003." Ubuntu is an African Zulu term, and by
definition
promotes: "The principle of caring for each other's well-being...and a
spirit of
mutual support...Each individual's humanity is ideally expressed through
his  or her relationship with others and theirs in turn through a
recognition
of  the individual's humanity. Ubuntu means that people are people through
other people." It also acknowledges both the rights and the responsibilities
of
every citizen in promoting individual and societal well-being" (Government
Gazette, 02/02/1996, No.16943, p.18, paragraph 18).
The conference will include a pre-conference team-building workshop on
March 21, with the bulk of the conference workshops to follow on Saturday,
March
22. The conference will focus on organizational management, personal
leadership development, and community building. Workshop topics for the
conference will include, but not be limited to: Fiscal management and
fundraising for Organizations;
Organizational Conflict Resolution; Goal setting and event planning for
organizations; Maintaining a healthy Personal balance; Leadership strategies
for Black men/women.

Registration for the conference is free. Full registration for the
conference will be limited to the first 75 people to register and will
include attendance to all workshops, a full continental breakfast, and
lunch in the hotel restaurant. Participants who register beyond this point
will
be  responsible for providing their own meals. Registration forms for the
conference can be picked up at the IBC, or by visiting the Dean of Students
 Office, multicultural affairs website at, http://www.dso.ufl.edu. Deadline
 for full registration will be March 15, 2003.  If you should have any
questions regarding the conference or registration,  feel free to contact us
at (352) 392-1261 x5. We look forward to your
 organizational support of this event.  Stephen E. Roberts, Director,
Institute of Black Culture
