CHAS has periodically facilitated meetings aimed at engaging specific administrative personnel whom students routinely encounter on college campuses. The purpose of these meetings is to assist staff in determining the degree to which particular offices are meeting the needs of underrepresented students and improve multicultural competency through the sharing of best practices.

In 2019, Brown University hosted the following event:
