2018 GLCA Students of Color Leadership Conference
November 2-3, 2018
Purpose: This annual conference is hosted by a different GLCA school each year to provide students of color with the opportunity to encourage academic success; strengthen their skills of leadership and cultural awareness; develop effective activism skills; and network with their peers from similar institutions, backgrounds and experiences.
The intersectionality of identities for students of color at Historically White Institutions (HWI) can be complex, yet rewarding. The ability to connect with various cultures, individuals and communities allow students the opportunity to build relationships that foster academic success while maintaining a carefree sense of self. Yet many times the stress of balancing collegiate life, relationships and the demands of society lead to the neglect of self-care and wellness. The goal of this conference is to unite students with the idea of self-love, awareness and pride, while actively caring for their community.
