DormCon organizes student-led training for Allied Barton workers

Students were invited to apply to lead trainings for dorm security workers, the first of which is set to take place this afternoon. The trainings, which will focus on “MIT culture and undergraduate needs” are expected to “alleviate past tension with Allied Barton and … build a better relationship between our student body and the security staff,” Kyle S. Saleeby ’17, Dormcon Housing Co-Chair, wrote in an email sent to dorm leaders.

A total of four one-hour training sessions are expected to take place (two today and two next Wednesday); Allied Barton has scheduled shifts so that all workers can attend one of the sessions, according to the email.

Saleeby wrote that the presentation will be designed to give desk workers an idea of how ideas like diversity, inclusion, culture, academics, and dorm life fit into student life at MIT.
